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).

    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.
