WHO'S THIS GUY?

Who am I?

If you are looking for an artist statement full of fancy and meaningless words, please stop reading now, I’m not your guy! I am however a hard working, motivated and dedicated autodidact photographer. I’m Swedish living in Switzerland for a total of 12 years now. A member of The Swiss Association for Contemporary Photography NEAR and represented by the Swiss photographer agency 13 Photo AG. My roots are in street photography but nowadays I mostly work on short- and long-term photo documentaries. My camera gives me a reason to explore new places and forces me to challenge the introvert in me. My method is flash, because I want the viewer to see everything, no hiding, no guessing.

I am making fun of myself. Maybe it doesn’t look like that, because there’s another person in front of the camera, but to some extent that person is me

The camera is my entrance-ticket. It is also my way of clarifying what is going on. Finally it’s a way of passing on this new-found experience to others
— David Hurn
Most photographers do not have the ability to record the event as it is. They take the easy option, the visual cliché.

You need obsession, dedication and balls. Get out there while you still can
