me

I´m a photographic artist that was born in june of 1985 in Gothenburg, the next biggest town in Sweden.

I´m studying for my Bachelor of Fine Art in Photography at the University of Gothenburg in Sweden.

I create images that are dreamlike, imaginative and surrealistic. With the art of photography I want to explore our inner worlds and psychological struggles. One topic that I tend to come back to is integrity and personal borders. How do we find peace in this world, how do we protect ourselves? I´m inspired by these processes that goes on within all of us, whether we are aware of it or not.

When I create a photograph it all starts with the idea. I often get a very clear image in my mind. I always do a sketch in my notebook and also write about the idea. Then I start to look for the right environment for my idea and if I need a prop or a special costume. I also think about models. Sometimes I use myself and sometimes I use other people, which is often friends or family. When I use myself it is because I know exactly how I want it to look, and it´s easy for me to create the right expression. I don´t see them as classical self portraits because you often won´t notice that i´s me in the picture. After the shooting is done I start to edit my photograph. Editing is a very creative process that can take weeks to finish. I experiment a lot with colors and usually I put several images together for the final image. I am fascinated by the digital technique that makes it possible to create almost everything.
