Bjorn’s infatuation with the art of images began when she moved to Paris, and her father sent her an old analogue Canon AE 1, from there her obsession with the magic of it all took her to the most beautiful places. From this, she yearned to bring like-minded women together to share the space. Especially women sharing the same desire and enthusiasm for travel, environmental politics and capturing realistic documentary-style imagery.
Having a strong connection to Latin America and seeing it somewhat like a second home. She started her travels specifically around Cuba, Mexico, Guatemala and Panama. Not only are her images severely impressive to look at, but they also entail layers of diaristic depth. She captures the imagistic truth of the people she meets and tries to stay as present as possible when doing so.
Bjorn’s creative, but realistic, endeavours deconstruct these cities far away from the politics and the tourists. She took this and created a wonderful crowd of individuals that are not only looking at the world with a critical eye but also hope for a more inclusive future. We spoke to her about the raw emotion depicted within her images, her visions and what the future holds for these communal explorations.
