Ola Lanko - All Year Round

March 06, 2014

Ola Lanko presents a new project that investigates and depicts the notion of time in an unusual manner. Her work comprises 365 photographs offering a literal retrospective of a year. The project is presented as an installation that gives the opportunity to experience time and its passing as momentum as well as a continuous and repetitive process where day and night, nature and weather conditions alternate in a natural way. In her project, Lanko combines the mechanical rationalism of the camera with a romantic sense of transience.
