I was born in Sweden. I studied photography at the Royal Institute of Technology in Melbourne, Australia as well as Parsons School of Design in New York. For many years I focused on fashion photography, but in the fall of 2009, I decided to travel to Pakistan to pursue documentary work about women who had suffered brutal acid attacks. After years of struggling to find a voice within my work, I now realized that my passion as a photographer was to focus on women's rights issues. In this field, I found my work to be engaging and potentially able to make an impact.
My latest project Without a Face has been published in magazines such as Vogue and Marie Claire. I was selected as a winner of the Magenta Foundation Flash Forward competition 2010 and attended the Eddie Adams workshop the same year. My work has also been exhibited in US, Canada, Syria, Sweden and I have recently received a grant from the Swedish Arts Committee to continue my project about acid burn survivors.
