to attend photography school. Since then he has turned in one of the favorite Scandinavian photographers for many ones.

Originally hailing from Örnsköldsvik in the north of Sweden, these days Knotan lives and works in Stockholm. If his photo style begins to look familiar to you, it’s probably because you recognize his earthy approach from publicity shots for T-Post, J. Lindeberg, Cheapo, CTRL or music bands such as The Strokes, The Hives, Annie, The Kills, among many others.

Although I know you feel more comfortable step out of advertisement business. How it being within such experience so far?

I think with the internet everything is global. But its kind of fun knowing the things you do will appear all over the world. I think that everyone knows when you’re doing commercial work it’s always someone that you have to please and “cant do your thing”.

What is your opinion about the communication and editorial landscape in Sweden/Stockholm/Scandinavia?

I don’t compare. I have from the beginning been working towards other countries and other magazines that has something more than how you should look right now and who is hot or not.

Some magazine from Scandinavia you now could highlight?

S Magazine (Denmark).

What do you like about Stockholm?

I love Stockholm in the summer and its not that big city so its close to everything and all of my best friends live here.

Which places could you recommend for a good hang-out?

Indigo (Götgatan 19)
Babylon (Björns Trädgårdsgränd)
Papercut (Krukmakargatan 24-26 på Södermalm) (T-bana: Mariatorget, uppgång Torkel Knutssons gata)
Gallery SteinslandBerliner (Bondegatan 70)
Gun Gallery (Runebergsgatan 3)

Which other cities are you feeling inspired for. It can be because your own experience already or because you are just in the mood for it.

Helsinki, Amsterdam, Berlin. I really like places when I get to know them, not just visit a town or place for a weekend, so I like to return to places and discover them.

Knotan is represented by New Blood Agency all over the world. A magnificent agency originally based in Malmö that recently moved to Stockholm. They really have the touch and sense necessary and its rooster includes also others great photographers.
