Björn Nilsson

 

I am essentially a cultural scientist specializing in media- and communication based in Stockholm. 

I started my career as a photography for local pappers in the 90`s, then switched path and began studying at JMK (Department of journalism, Media- and communication ).

I have always expressed myself through images, whether it`s through photography, paintings or drawings. 

In recent years I have become more and more interested in human relations and society as a whole, how it effects us.

I often use light with great passion when portraying the environment and people I capture.
