A picture is worth a thousand words. How true that is…

If you succeed in capturing beauty in a photograph, it will affect you on an emotional level. That was my goal for each and every photo I selected for this book. I want to make an impression on my readers.

I became interested in photography quite recently, at the age of 35. But even early on, it was never just a casual hobby for me. Photography has become my second profession, in which I’ve invested a lot of time, effort and money. I totally love it and I’m passionate about documenting my work and hair art on a daily basis. This has been another example of realizing a lifelong dream.

In 2010, I was nominated as “Hairdresser of the Year” for the first time in Sweden and this gave a real boost to my interest in photography. For four years running, I’ve continued to be nominated as “Hairdresser of the Year” in Sweden: 2010, 2011, 2012 and 2013.
