— A Love Letter to Stockholm
Kolla was established in 2018. We exhibit and sell photography art from Stockholm, Sweden.
A Love Letter to Our City
Founded in 2018 by professional photographers Cole Roberts and Jakob Granqvist, Kolla was born out of a simple yet salient desire to write an ongoing love letter to its home city of Stockholm: the most beautiful city in the world. Showcasing original photographs from talented local photographers, Kolla’s goal is to use photography art as a means to offer art-seekers, purveyors, and appreciators a myriad of beautiful perspectives of Stockholm - perspectives and stories as unique and diverse as the city itself. Keeping the selection of art offerings limited to pieces created only by those with strong connections to Stockholm allows for the distinct privilege of seeing the city through the lenses of those who know it best.
Every piece of photography art featured by Kolla has been carefully hand-selected and thoughtfully curated by professionals with many years in the business. And with more than 50 new and established photographers in the Kolla network, there is unlimited potential for fair representation across stylistic genres. At Kolla there is truly something available for everyone, yet since each photograph is available in limited qualities and made to order, each piece purchased is truly one-of-a-kind.
Local Goods of Highest Quality
With a special focus on keeping the integrity of famed Scandinavian design and style alive, the quality and beauty of a Kolla art piece is truly unmatched. Printed only on the highest quality Hahnemüle paper using 12 color pigment printers, extreme lustre and longevity are eye- catchingly evident in every Kolla original. There is great pride to be had in Swedish makers and manufacturers, so naturally each Kolla frame is handmade in Sweden using fine Swedish wood and real glass.
Buying art is an experience which should be nothing short of immersive, rich, and absolutely individualized. In the words of co-founder Jakob Granqvist, “‘Quality over quantity’, ‘ you get what you pay for’. The sayings are many when it comes to quality and price, and this certainly holds true with our products, too....we want that hand-made feeling to shine through and for people to feel that they’re getting a unique art piece”. Quality matters, and at Kolla, you will find nothing less than the best quality; nothing less than original photography art that has a decidedly exclusive feel and a fiercely inclusive attitude.
