A step by step guide from my creation of ”To the moon and back”. It was a magical evening with beautiful light, and me and my mother (to the left in the picture) ran over the field, while I used my remote to take pictures. I didn´t know what we were running towards, but later on in Photoshop I played around and the image ended in black and white, with us running towards the moon/a far away planet? I love to create like this, with no plan in my head, just letting my intuition guide me towards the final image 🙂
This step by step guide was also published, with longer text, on my swedish blog.
Thank you for reading <3
Here is a little movie from a beautiful day of shooting. This day I went out in the forest, location scouting and shooting a staged self portrait. I used some baby powder to create a smoky effect in the image. The images you see in the end are unedited images.

I am exhibiting together with Victoria Söderström at Scandinavian Photo in Bankeryd, Sweden. The name of the exhibition is ”Petrichor (n.)- the smell of earth after rain”. Here are some images from the whole exhibition!
The exhibition will go on until 31/3 2017 at Scandinavian Photo in Bankeryd.
I made a small behind-the-scenes film from the making of my image Serenade for solitude that you can see below. You can also subscribe to my Youtube channel to see more videos!
And this is the finished image!

I have been away during the weekend to exhibit together with Victoria Söderström at the Stockholm Photo Fair. It was an amazing experience, both to see our beautiful exhibition and to hold two inspirational speeches for the fairs´visitors.
Me and Victoria decided to hang all the images mixed as one big show, without our names under each image. Our images have the same style and they work well together, though they differ in story and motives.
Here I am in my most comfy outfit, checking out the exhibition the day before it opened. I was so happy to see the images this big! It´s the way I always envision my images in my mind when I´m working. To the left is Victorias image ”Solitude”. To the right is my image ”Universe”. They had the same magenta tone in them which made them a great pair.
Thank you to everyone who came! It was an incredible weekend!
When we had lots of show in Gothenburg I went out to take some self portraits with a glass cover. It was all very spontaneous. I brought the glass cover and thought about some ideas while dressing in black. My mom was supposed to come for coffee but instead she got to be my assistant in the snow and take care of Tjorven (my dog) while photographing! That´s what happens when you come for coffee at my place haha 😉
Last year I felt quite unproductive, but as I look back, I discover that I have created at least 26 images, and this makes me feel so proud! Though it has been a chaotic year for me, I have managed to hold on to what is most important to me: photography. When I create, I am happy and whole. Nothing in the world can compete with that feeling.
Thank you for following my journey. Thank you for all your messages and emails and for showing me that you exist. I´m so incredibly happy to get to share what I love the most with you!
I try to catch autumn because it is so beautiful. I know some people don´t like autumn. Some people say they long for summer. But the colors and the fresh wind and the coldness in the air makes me feel so alive, so clean. I love autumn <3
