I'm a 58 year old man from Sweden. I'm married to Anna-Lena and we have two grown kids, who have both flown the nest. When I was young I did athletics, mostly I ran 200-400 meters. At 19 I started coaching and at 27 I became a professional coach. This is still my job, even though during the 2010s I did mostly admin duties at the school for 16-19 year old athletes where I work. Now I'm back at coaching again!
I've been into photography for over 40 years by now. In the beginning, I shot everything, with my friends and athletes as the most common subjects. But when I look at my old negatives, I realize I shot something similar to street photography right from the start.
I've always liked to travel and always taken a lot of photos when I did. Since 2010 I've traveled extensively and combined my longing to discover the world with a growing passion for street photography.
