Nordic Storytelling with Mika Aberra

Nordic Storytelling with Mika Aberra

Mika Aberra is a 23 years old photographer from the Swedish city of Gothenburg. As you can see from the collection of photographs below, he is quite a talented individual! After playing youth football at an elite level, Mika developed a passion for photography in his late teens. He has recently been able to go full-time, and currently focuses on outdoors and travel photography. 

 

 

 

 

 

"To me it is very important that I work with pictures in series, a bit like a movie, rather than just trying to take pictures that are beautiful one by one."

Mika: "I really like the concept that an image can be even stronger if it has one or more other images that complement it. I feel that I have a real eye for composition, and the editing skills to really achieve the client's key objectives. I think my strongest side is being able to convey a story and underlying message through my pictures."

"Fortunately I've had the opportunity to travel a lot with my job and I think that has been the most important part of my development, both on an artistic and personal level. Through my travels, I have built an understanding of people, places, cultures and so much more. I try to transfer this to my work as well as influencing the way that I am as a person."
