Meet The Artist

Carl Jansson


Calle Jansson is a 29 year old photographer who originally hails from Södertälje, but now calls the southern part of Stockholm his home along with his girlfriend, dog, and newborn daughter. Södertälje is where a 16 year old Calle - inspired by his father - first picked up a camera (and hasn’t stopped carrying one around since).

Naturally inclined towards the dramatic and moody, Calle's work is often ethereal, dark, and a bit spooky. He confesses that he “rarely even brings the camera if the sky is blue”. Calle firmly sticks to what he knows and what he believes in, even when others might not quite “get” his vision. He confesses, “I uploaded this picture on instagram a couple of years ago, and a friend of mine asked me if I needed someone to talk to. I don’t know whether he was serious or not...it’s not that my pictures mirror a depressed inner me at all. I just like the melancholic feeling in the pictures, just as I like melancholic music sometimes, and I can’t really explain it better than that."
