Started working as a photographer in my early twenties after many years as an amateur photographer. Already then was my eyes set on documentary photography, so my first employment as a photographer was with a newspaper. The closest thing to my own work as I could get. After ten years I set on a career as a freelancer, partly to get the time and space for my own projects. Tivoliliv was one of them.
My personal photography has always had its origin in my own life and experiences. People and places. The projects I work with all have their base in my own history, growing up in a small village just outside the city of Helsingborg, Sweden, in the 60’s and 70’s.
