Emil Fagander's interest in photography began at an early age, when his uncle introduced him to cameras during summer holidays together in southern Sweden.
Though his work is not neorealism, there is often an element of spontaneity in his imagery. Fagander calls his style “imperfect perfectionism”, always using a carefully considered lighting technique to create a dramatic image with great focus and composition.
Having worked as an assistant photographer to Frederik Lieberath and Bruno Ehrs, Fagander gained invaluable experience that was truly educational.
Last but not least, Emil Fagander is well-known as a really nice person and a delight to work with.
