Ola.works is a place where visual artist Ola Lanko opens up the doors to her atelier and shows the working process. It is a visual collection of thoughts, sources and ideas which are in a stage of development.
Ola Lanko studied sociology at the National University in Kiev, photography at the Royal Academy of Arts in The Hague and Gerrit Rietveld Academy in Amsterdam. Ola uses a systematic and analytical way of thinking, together with a remarkable visual language as her method to work with photography and explore it as a medium. She believes that in order to get the most from the visual information we are surrounded with, it is necessary to develop a qualitative approach to the process of looking, have a critical attitude towards images and be conscious about the place photography takes in our lives.
