Björn Persson is an internationally acclaimed artist based in Stockholm, Sweden. He has spent many years travelling around the world in search of adventure and spectacular images. His passion for this planet’s beautiful wildlife and humans is reflected in his images.
Björn looks upon his work as an art form rather than pure wildlife and documentary photography. Driven by a passion for inspiring people to engage, his photographs resonate a highly emotional level. The ambition with his imagery is to to portray the wild animals as they truly are: beautiful, sentient and highly conscious beings with different needs and personalities. With his camera as his paintbrush, he wants to capture their souls and translate their wisdom. His photos are evocative, dreamy and cinematic, generating manifestations beyond the obvious reality. To create his works of art, he uses a wide range of styles, involving everything from artistic post production to overlays.
