Photography

Engström, JH (1969)

JH Engstrom started photographing at 15 and, after assisting Mario Testino and Anders Petersen, graduated from the University of Gothenburg, in 1997. The Swedish photographer poetically captures emotions and metaphors with strong contrasts, black-and-white or color images, also accepting light leaks or color shifts that deliver a faded or washed-out patina that enhances their nostalgic feel. Privileging eclectic styles and themes, JH Engstrom is celebrated for his natural and laid back nudes that prefer a certain domestic aesthetic over erotism, like photographs taken in a personal diary, as if we were ‘looking at memories’, as critic, Martin Jaeggi observes.
