I am probably the most unknown photographer in the world.
For the past 15 years of my life I have been trying to create a body of work that I can respect. Searching for my style, at first it was nowhere to be found. Finally, after many years of trials and mistakes, I realised that I…still suck big time. And, nobody seems to care.
My photography is very personal to me, even though I do professional work as well.
I have worked as a photojournalist, done editorial work and worked as a portrait photographer, but my heart lays closest to street-photography.
When it comes to photographic technique, I am completely autodidact. I have done extensive studies in Theoretical Philosophy and Anthropology at the University of Gothenburg where I wrote an essay in Theoretical Philosophy named “The Form Capturing Theory of Photography” in which I based a theory of photography on the work of Aristotle. I also wrote another essay for my bachelors in Anthropology named “Anthropological Ambiguity Concerning Photography”, so my wonderings about photography tend to be a bit “overcomplicated” (my wife’s opinion) and philosophical.
I am hugely influenced by the ‘classics’ in photography and art in general, so when I work with my photography it is very important to me that my photographs can stand on their own, even if they are included in a series, and pass the test of time. I tend to look for universals in human experience because I believe those kind of emotions, captured on a photograph, can last forever.
Currently, I am based in Gothenburg, Sweden/Bangkok, Thailand.
I hope you enjoy my work.
