When people think of Africa, they often picture scenes from 'The Lion King' without even realizing it; Kenya by Osma Harvilahti, a photographer based in Helsinki, Finland, is a photo series that hopes to dispel that stereotype. In place of desert landscapes, elephants and dusty villages, this series is full of colorfully abstract captures that look more like still life sets than candid scenarios.

From a local hanging up laundered sheets to a banana trapped by a windshield wiper (and subsequently being stolen by a wild monkey), Kenya by Osma Harvilahti is an artistically eye-opening series that will enamor many. With work featured in such prestigious publications as Inventory Magazine, Wilder Quarterly Magazine and ELLE Magazine as well as clients such as Nokia, BBC and Monocle, it is no surprise its so impressive.
