來自芬蘭赫爾辛基的攝影師 Osma Harvilahti 許多人對他並不陌生,因為他的作品每半年就會被各大平台介紹一輪,最為令人印象深刻的是他影像特殊的色彩與層次感;而時常於世界各地奔走的他,對各種不同國家的族群詮釋也十分巧妙。

《POLYCHROMATIC》是 Osma Harvilahti 的個人攝影專輯,限量460本。此書為挪威的Éditions du LIC所出版,定價€47.5。

The debut monograph from Osma Harvilahti presented in a limited edition cloth covered hardcover book. This First Edition is limited to just 460 numbered copies.

Immediately distinguished by their vibrant palettes and inventive compositions, Osma Harvilahti’s photographs stem from a wilful resolve to aestheticise the world to the point of abstraction, with his subjects assessed and portrayed entirely on the level of colour, pattern, and form. 

Rife with visual layering and unusual vantage points, his images are decidedly and deliberately less about representation than about interpretation; regardless of where he aims his lens, the results always tell us far less about his subjects than about how the photographer sees them. The work thus looks to vision not as a means of comprehension, but rather as a process (conscious or not) of selection and exclusion; an idea that reinforces both the fragmentary nature of photography and the utter relativity of perception itself.
