"18 years old I started my photography business, and since then I’ve considered myself a photographer. I’ve done anything from studio work to press photography, commercial and editorial. Produced numerous exhibitions, books, artistic projects and multimedia presentations. Taught classes in Photoshop, analogue techniques and Art/Documentary/Photography studies. I have a bachelors degree in Photography and studied Journalism at the University of Gothenburg, Sweden."
