While exploring bark beetle engravings on driftwood logs and lichen growth on forest tree stumps I have been reflecting on the threat of the rapidly changing natural environment in the Anthropocene.
My interest in exploring the natural environment has long informed my art. I have been photographing snow in its melting stages, autumn leaves floating in rushing rivers and intertidal life forms on beaches. My lens is often directed to the less documented expressions of our changing environment, capturing close-up details of natural forms in their cycle of decay and renewal.
While observing and photographing these forms, I have been reflecting on the threat of the rapidly changing natural environment in the Anthropocene.
I am a fine art photographer living in Seattle. Born and raised in Sweden, I am a graduate of the University of Stockholm, Sweden and the Photographic Center Northwest in Seattle.
My photographs have been exhibited in numerous galleries and museums across the US and Sweden and are included in several public and corporate collections, including Harborview Medical Center, Microsoft Corporation, King County Arts Collection, Houston Museum of Fine Art and the City of Tacoma.
The book "Melt" with my photographs was published 2015, Pine Needle Books.
