Helsinki-born photographer Osma Harvilahti is absolutely killing it with his studies in colour, composition and visual abstraction. His images are aestheticised so far to the point that reality takes on an almost sculptural feel.
Osma’s photographs seem familiar, almost as though we have already seen or have taken mental screen shots of these images of every day life - clutter in a lounge room, clothes on a washing line, a plate of fruit. It’s this perfect balance between aesthetic and reality that he has found an almost comforting place for the viewer.
You could ask me, “what is one of your biggest life time struggles you have to deal with on a constant basis?”
And my honest answer would be,
Internal conflict w/ eating or not after I’ve brushed my teeth n in bed
Holding in my pee until tomorrow morning cos I’ve found my comfy place to sleep
Organising my wardrobe by colour/season, ending up as a floordrobe in two days
Such struggle much realness so sadness
