The uncertainty of Ola Rindal’s images grasps the viewer and lures one in to a world of photography free from the notion of instant narrative and representation.
Invisible (Pictures for an untold story) is the product of Rindal’s experiments with film, texture, exposure and light. The obvious playfulness in the technique Rindal has chosen for his particular subjects points to a school of photography, where the end result is about exploring a glance, and pushing the boundaries of its terms. Rindal explores the fugitive, the mysterious and invisible in his imagery.
The images for the book have an emphasis on his childhood village of Fåvang, Norway, where Ola Rindal makes up his base when escaping his home in Paris.
Ola Rindal has had solo exhibitions in Norway, Sweden, Mexico and Belgium and done editorial work for magazines like Purple fashion, Dossier, Rodeo Magazine, I-D and Acne Paper. His last exhibitions were at Catherine Bastide, Brüssels, and MELK gallery, Oslo, in 2010 and previous book published by JSBJ in 2011 and Hassla books in 2007.
