    Osma Harvilahti: Morocco Diptychs

Osma Harvilahti returns from Morrocco with a treasure trove of exquisite photographic diptychs

Posted by James Cartwright,

Since we last spoke back in August, Finnish photographer Osma Harvilahti has been a busy guy. As you’d hope from a bright young creative talent he’s been involved in both commercial work and, rather more excitingly we think, a personal project that’s seen him travel across Africa just for the hell of it. Taking in Morocco, Kenya and a third location that he’s yet to decide upon, the resulting images offer a beautifully composed exploration of each country’s visual make-up.

These six diptychs are just a small sample of five days’ worth of photographs taken on location in Morocco and show off Osma’s extraordinary ability to seek out naturally occurring textures, hues and tones that many other photographers would miss, not to mention his undeniable knack for creating narrative and conceptual pairings from complementary images. We like, a lot.
