I was born in 1992 in a small village in Sweden, called Älvestorp. I moved to Stockholm to study at Cirkus Cirkörs high school of new circus at the age of 16. Here I specialized in Teeterboard and handstand. After three years of high school studies, I went on to study at DOCH, University of Dance and Circus. I graduated there with a bachelor in circus 2014. In January 2015 me and Anton Graaf won Gold Medal at Cirque de Demain in Paris with our teeterboard act. After Paris we have won numerous of prizes at diffrent festivals around the world including a Bronze Clown at international circus festival du Monte Carlo 2018.
I like to shape the world into art through my photographing. The moving body in diffrent enviroments. Combined with sharpness, simplicity, colours and lines. The architecture of the city and the shape of the nature give me inspiration and also puts the body and the surrounding in a coherent purpose. I want to show the uniqueness of every artist in a new and interesting way. Every photo should be a circus show in it self.
The contrast between objects, bodies and environments can melt together through forms, lines, colours and shapes inspires my photography. I have been taking photos for 8 years and I enjoy the freedom of it. The meeting between the artist, my camera and the city we are in.
