Erik Malm was born in 1964. Since early childhood, he has been very interested in nature. However, it was another strong interest that would become his profession, the music. He studied clarinet at the Music Conservatory in Gothenburg. He has also studied conducting. For many years he played in the opera orchestra at the Malmö Opera.
As a photographer he is totally autodidact. It was pure coincidence that got Erik Malm to start with what is now usually called "Intentional Camera Movement (ICM)". You move the camera during long exposures. In Erik Malm cases it to 99.9% single exposures. It is extremely rare that he uses double or multiple exposures.
The results Erik Malm worked hard to achieve has claimed more than fifteen years of practice. However, technique is not the goal but just a way to reach the artistic expression he is seeking. Just as in music.
