Ola Bergengren is recognized world wide for his imagery. As a young aspiring photographer in London in the mid 90’s, he decided to make a try at the genre of Still Life. No one around him really seemed to think highly of Still Life Photography, so he saw his chance to break new grounds. He approached the genre with no respect towards the traditional studio set ups, shooting high fashion objects paired with unexpected items from everyday life. His photos where unapologetic and often had an absurd or erotic undertone. Lighting and retouching was never overworked.
Amongst his first commissions were editorials for i-D, The Face and Dazed & Confused who all encouraged his artistic freedom and gave him the means to develop his visual language. Ola’s photography instantly gained great appreciation in the fashion industry and his client list includes giants such as Prada, Armani, Louis Vuitton and Nike as well as avant garde favorites Back and Acne Studios. Today his clients come equally from the worlds of fashion, art and architecture, and he has been noticed in a number of solo and group exhibitions.
