I've been an amateur photographer since 1969. Today I am mainly interested in what could be described as straight photography. I shoot with any kind of camera that fits my purpose, and have used Nikon FM and F2 bodies for film photography, and Nikon D300, Fujifilm X100 and Panasonic Lumix LX3 for digital photography. Today I use a Leica M Monochrom (CCD), a Richo GR IIIx, and a Nikon Z6 with lenses ranging from the late 60's to modern F-mount lenses.
I was born 1950 in Västerås, Sweden, grew up in Malmö, where I during the 70's worked as a factory worker and as a sheet metal worker at the Kockum's shipyard. In 1980 I moved to Falun where I studied Early Childhood Education at the University College. In 1995 I was accepted as a doctoral student in Education at Uppsala University, getting my Ph.D. in 1999. Until my retirement in September 2015 I worked there as a senior lecturer. I live with my wife in Uppsala.
