Photographer, filmmaker and artist. Born 1976 in Örebro, Sweden. Based in Stockholm.  

Educated at Nordens Fotoskola 2001 - 2003

“I am interested in the ungraspable and unexplainable. My work is on many levels an exploration of the human condition – as well as an introspective state driven by intuition and instinct. I often describe my photography as tranquil and enigmatic – a search for imaginary scenes and situations. Recurring themes I always comes back to are the mind, consciousness and the impermanence of our existence. I am not sure what is happening and why I take certain pictures and that it is part of my method. It is more of a reaction I am interested in. A reaction to what I see and feel. To find yourself in the middle of something.”
