I am a Swedish photographer based in London. Having studied journalism, photography and sociology, my work focuses on human relations in a western, contemporary environment.
By using sociology as a frame of research and approach, I find it a good combination when trying to focus on the interaction between man and society.
My recently completed project “Into Oblivion” is an example of my long-term personal work, combining photography and sociology. For three years I worked on a photographic project investigating the politics of ageing in the western world with a focus on care policies for people with Alzheimer’s disease.
Since the project’s completion I have been invited by schools, independent organizations and galleries to talk about the series and my approach to photography.
I also do commissioned portraits and reportage features for the weekly and monthly press such as The Guardian Weekend Magazine, Intelligent Life, New Statesman, Monocle Magazine, FT Magazine, Der Spiegel, Le Monde and I collaborate with humanitarian organisations, cultural institutions and social scientists on academic projects.
