Hot foil embossed cloth covered hardcover, 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.
