The recurring theme of Olga's photographs is isolation. Trying to capture the sensation of being unobserved even when one is present in a public space.Lost in his own thoughts, no matter where one is. The bustling city street or far away in the heart of the mountains.
"I am fascinated by lines and textures crossing. When I look at my pictures I often feel like a secret observer of people and their surroundings. I ponder what their thoughts may be or what happens behind the closed curtains of their apartments.People are never the dominant piece of the image. It's the surroundings that are thought provoking"
