I was introduced to the world of photography in the analogue age.
This was in the early 90’s, when digital-cameras were pretty much unheard of, and the process of making a photo was a lot more complicated than pressing a button on a smartphone.
Dad was a huge photography digger in the analogue age, bringing his camera to various places in Sweden and a few different places in the world over the course of 20 years or so. His passion for the craft of the analogue age, the attention to detail when preparing a shot, to the ”heat of the moment” philosophy that he oftenly worked hard to capture – they all shaped my earliest skill-sets and are always in the back of my head whenever I want to get the most out of a particular moment.
As the digital age arrived, and I was allowed to borrow mom & dad’s Nikon Coolpix 5MP camera for the first time in 2006, nothing would ever really be the same again. The digital technology and flexibility opened a world of possibilities, and before I knew it, I was on a deep exploration in an endlessly fascinating artistic universe that I didn’t know existed.
