Focusing on documentary photography, there is a strong sense of art based practice in my work. I use mainly classic analogue techniques, alternating between carefully composed medium format images and less polished gritty flash snapshots. I like the combination of the two, one providing a sense of studied documentation while the other can afford to shed light on unforeseen truths. Curiosity about people’s personal lives is a driving force in my work and by employing detailed study I want to provide the viewer with the feeling that they know the people in my photographs personally without ever having met them.
I am half Swedish half American. I grew up in Sweden, Denmark and Spain and have attended Edinburgh College of Art, Glasgow School of Art and Central Saint Martins. I will complete a BA Honors degree in Photographic Arts at the University of Westminster in July 2016.
