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.

  • haha or even like a ” WTF are you staring at? ” face as well.

  • there’s something about them i really like. the first color photo looks like a frame from like The Omen or something.

  • Mandy

    the first one is beautiful. the last one too.

  • RAW!!!!
