Olya Oleinic

photographer

Whether creating fashion work, conceptual imagery or still life, Olya Oleinic is all about figuratively reconstructing her previously collected daily impressions. Whether it’s for clients such as Fred Perry x Raf Simons, G-Star, Mytheresa, personal projects or editorials, she finds mundane rituals equally valuable as invigorating experiences, which all together are part of a creative flow.

Olya very much believes in a similar relationship between her topics and aesthetics. Keen on meticulously constructing her photographs, Olya starts with a well thought through idea, then moves on to sketching the images and ultimately finalizing them with an extra layer of post production – Olya’s strength is precisely in these details.

Born in a collapsing Soviet Union, having lived in London and currently based in Amsterdam, Olya is always about to step on a plane to explore some other place. Her most recent travels found Olya travelling to China, where she created the tremendous body of work visible in her very first exhibition in the prestigious FOAM, photography museum Amsterdam (November ’16). Most recently she was part of New York’s prestigious Red Hook Labs spotlight of 25 globe-spanning artists.
