Pictures of The Month/ Erkki Vornanen: Red Bricks

07.01.2019 - 03.02.2019

Erkki Vornanen, an Oulu-based photographer, has photographed the changes in the facade of the former Oulun Villatehdas (Oulu wool factory) lcated in Pikisaari, Oulu, for his series Red Bricks. The house made of red bricks more than a hundred years ago has turned from industrial space into studios of local artists. The changes can be seen also in the walls of the building, where holes and patches have been made. Professional expertise of the masons and the materials used have varied. All this results as walls from where a photographer can pick various interesting textures, tones of colour and details.
