"From time immemorial the Nordic peoples (folk) soul has been shaped by the struggle between the seasons. The contrast between light and darkness, between hope and despair, between elation and melancholy. The Scandinavian soul, like the bear seeks isolation, when the sun turns its face to other latitudes; with the desire to retire, to hibernate, reflect and contemplate, a going within; and from this ambience comes creative inspiration. It is my desire and intention to try to capture the beauty present in this contrast between the light and the dark, and the interaction of colors, with natures unruly and unconditional constitution, this is the key. I would like to show you that there's great hope right here, in our love of nature; that is the challenge that ignites the creative fires in me, to produce portraits of a big country"
I was born in small town in the middle parts of Sweden. My interest in photography started in late 2006 while visiting London. Soon this interest became more than a interest, I found the world of fine art photography.
I do have a fondness for black & white photographing and I mostly find my inspiration from the French and from the eastern European scene. My black & white photos express the Nordic light and I enhance that light with tones that suits that special atmosphere in Scandinavia.
In addition to photographing, I am a musician as well, and I'm sharing the world of music and the world of photography with the viewer and to the listener.
My latest work will be whown here.

Communication can be generally defined as, “the exchanging or imparting of ideas and information” (Chambers 21st Century Dictionary, 2001). While this definition is very vague, communication has thousands of possible definitions that can be difficult to define (Dimbleby, 1998, p. 3, para. 3).
