Photographer, Fearless & Fabulous

Hello there!
Photographer Bodil Johansson (aka Elakkanin) uses her experience from binge watching films 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: “I want to be everything for someone. Not something for everyone.”

“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. Even when things go wrong, and as life taught me, things do go wrong. But 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. My camera is a superhero.

Bodil Johansson is a contributor to Arcangel
And a proud member of the Association of Swedish Professional Photographers/SFF (Svenska Fotografers Förbund)

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.
