Vanishing Nation (2010)
sland nations in the South Pacific stand at the front lines of the current environmental crisis. The island residents are vulnerable to more extreme weather patterns, such as typhoons, flooding, and drought. Once isolated societies are now trying to figure out how to adapt to the new problem of climate change while continuing to grapple with globalization, both of which are transforming the way of life and culture across the region. My project is about documenting this transitional period in the South Pacific and the effects these changes are having on its communities.

 After studying photography in my native Sweden I moved to New York to attend the International Center of Photography. I now specialize in portraiture and reportage photography. My photographs have been published in several major Newspapers and Magazines in Norway, Sweden, England, US, France and Switzerland. My photographic work in the past has had the common denominator of displacement, and has included subjects such as the slowly sinking islands of Kiribati, the underage workers in Ethiopia, and the war torn lives of women in Sri Lanka. Although the causes of displacement and migration may vary, I am interested in the larger picture and the human experience of migration.
