"I think it’s brave to try to be happy."
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.
Enjoy more of Osma’s work on his Tumblr and Instagram.
#no seriously i know I'm whining
It’s like I’m giving up on myself. I have no strength to do anything. I had a thousand things to do on my freaking list. But I had no energy to do anything.
I want to sleep so bad. And I asked the world to leave me alone.
