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.
