Photographer Bodil Johansson (aka Elakkanin) uses her background in film screening and reading a lot of books to influence her photography. Based in Malmö, Sweden, she can be found working on portraits, travel, editorial and most anything of interest.
She also work with visual stories and as a social media consultant (especially Instagram). Making a hybrid of art photography and the snapshot aesthetic, autobiographical detail and documentary storytelling. Or as she says: “One day I started to trust my instincts and moved from my comfort zone into (as I call it) the more interesting danger zone. Doing what I never dared to do before. Doing what I love.”
“Photography is a way of freezing memories and tell a visual story, and a way of living life to the fullest. Both DSLR-photography and Instagram has helped me to experience unforgettable moments and meet amazing people.”
“I’ve made it one of my life’s goal to be as creative as possible towards everything I endeavor. And I believe deeply that sharing is caring and empowering. Every photo has its own soundtrack.”
“All those moments will be lost in time like tears in rain.” (Rutger Hauer in Blade Runner). It starts there. To stop losing all those moments called life with my camera. My camera freezes time.
She also likes beautiful, usable design and imaginative thoughts. Bodil wants communication to be inclusive and is a firm believer in that sharing is caring and empowering. She does have a soft spot for technology and making people understand how it works. And she never leaves home without her lipstick.
