Elin (b. 1978) lives and works in Umeå, Sweden. She holds a degree in Photojournalism from the Nordic School of Photography. Additional to her own projects in still image and documentary film, she works with various clients on commission. She regularly gives artist talks and lectures.
Elin’s personal work is rooted in the storytelling tradition of her home, the province of Västerbotten in northern Sweden, a place that have nurtured many inspiring writers and artists, as well as the Hasselblad award winner photographer Sune Jonsson. In the era of globalization, she is interested in how human meetings are creating and reshaping cultural identities and how people’s environments change with them. For her the camera is a tool to sight and reflect on the different nuances of reality –not to give dead certain answers.
She has released three monographs and has had numerous solo exhibitions.
