About me

I am a freelance photographer based in Stockholm, Sweden, who got my degree in photojournalism at Nordens Fotoskola Biskops Arnö – the Nordic School of Photography. I enjoy short assignments for magazines and organizations as well as long-term projects within Sweden and abroad. My main focus is still photography. However, after a documentary film course at Escuela Internacional de Cine y TV in Cuba, I started working with film as well. Sometimes I also write, mostly feature stories. Once in a while I give lectures on photojournalism for students and photographic societies.

I’m a member of Kontinent photojournalist agency.

In a team with three other photographers, I’m documenting child births around Stockholm, via Förlossningsfoto.se.

I’ve contributed to a number of group exhibitions and produced solo exhibitions on the projects Trafficking, Watching you watch me and Hundred Times the Difference. Watching you watch me is also a book, which you can order for 100 SEK + postage by sending me an email.
