Johan Willner

More photography from Sweden. Johan Willner. Especially love his black and white work, some of which is more than a decade old! Photography, like a fine wine, only gets better with age (or so I’m told, I’m the guy who always buys the “house” wine cuz its usually the cheapest).


Jeff Hamada is the Founder and Editor of Booooooom. He lives and works in Vancouver.

    fairly nice work, the black and white is pretty epic i must agreee! Its weird how a lot of the people he shoots (i.e. color shots) they all have the same look; like this blank stare into the camera like a dull emotion, or you can tell somethings missing or wrong.. iono haha.

The gorgeous framing is really makes this simple idea quite striking. More images from Fiction Landscapes below.

Video of the Day: “Life is a Dance” by Sebastian Linda

Incredible energy in the filming/editing of this dance video by artist/filmmaker Sebastian Linda. Visual style is very similar to Leonardo Dalessandri’s “Watchtower of Turkey” (featured here) but I’d say it’s a much better fit with this type of content. Check out “Life is a Dance” below!
