After having started photographing at the age of 13 i stopped after a few years as film became to expensive for me to continue and did not take it up again until 17 years later at the age of 33 when i decided to buy my very first digital camera. Shortly after i started studying art & design history at the Textile University of Borås I got involved in shooting people and experimental fashion for the very first time. Even though i now shoot mainly digital i still look towards the analogue processes for my inspiration, and try to convey a feeling of old and abstract imagery.
Most of my photography is done with real life processes to get the feeling, using lighting techniques, optical elements, long exposures and such to achieve the result in camera rather than in the post processing. I have a special fondness for odd subjects and ideas, quite often ending up in very abstract photography with little narrative and guidance for the viewers and quite often depicting movement and fluidity.
