I am a photographer and writer, born in 1958 and lives in West Sweden. I started taking photographs in my early teens and, after completing my compulsory schooling, I was apprenticed to a portrait photographer.
In 1982 I enrolled at the Stockholm Academy of Dramatic Arts to train as a film cameraman, but I dropped out in favour of teacher training and photography, graduating in 1986. During vacations I worked as a press photographer.
I have been a full-time photographer and author since 1994.
Speglingar (Reflections), was my first book, published in 1996. Since then I have made several books and have had numerous exhibitions both in Sweden and abroad.
My photography was initially entirely focused on the natural world, with the landscape in center. In 1995 I won Foto magazine’s ’Scandinavian Nature Photographer of the Year’ title, and in 2004 the Swedish Environmental Protection Agency namned me as ’Photographer of the Year’.
Today, in creating my images, I increasingly seeks the interfaces of nature, humankind and society. Photography is my way of exploring reality, to consider, interpret and visualize. By taking pictures, I discover the world. Foremost is the desire and joy, and a great passion for the art of photography.
