Martin Johansson is a self-taught digital and analogue photographer living in Gothenburg, Sweden. Having used his father’s Nikkormat and dark room in his teens, his journey into photography was re-ignited and changed completely in 2015 when he accepted, and finally embraced himself as gay. During his travelling for work he started capturing his encounters with young gay men with his digital camera using the available light and space in hotel rooms throughout Europa and North America. His choice of subjects is fuelled by his own history and these meetings have been used as means to come to terms with his present and future self. Male, skin, body, form, movement and youth is very much present in his work and his photography nowadays never come without the attendance of the male human, part or in whole. Martin is inspired by artists such as Ren Hang, Nan Goldin, Christer Strömholm, Peter Hujar, Ian David Baker, Winter Vandenbrink, Lionel Wendt and MuChum.
