Sweden can be considered as the country of art. With thousands of exhibitions of art and being one of the most revolutionary places for an artist to be, is easy to understand the grasp that many artists take from this beautiful country.
But one of the kinds of artist that truly take advantage of the landscapes and scenery of Sweden are their photographers, being in touch with their roots and knowing how to work with the lands of Sweden they have established a name for them and are considered to be one of the best kinds of photographers in the world.
A lot of the following photographers that we are going to talk about are known for having a human feeling surrounding their pictures, and an artistic look that can show us a little more about that hidden world of humanity that we still don’t know.

Being a fantastic photographer, JH is famous for taking an interesting approach to the narrative by letting their pictures to describe the modern situation, not to mention that around their project is “sketch of Paris” a project that focuses on the big city of Paris and their movement around the times of 1980.
