Polly Rusyn
Polly Rusyn is an award-winning street photographer whose work has been published and exhibited internationally. She is also a street photography teacher and speaker, and created the Department of Street Photography to focus on providing street photography education that includes portfolio reviews as well as workshops and digital resources. She is best known for her bold colour work, and believes photographs that are in colour should also be “about” colour — in that colour is another subject.

Niklas Lindskog

I’m a 58 year old man from Sweden. I’m married to Anna-Lena and we have two grown kids, who have both flown the nest. When I was young I did athletics, mostly I ran 200-400 meters. At 19 I started coaching and at 27 I became a professional coach.

This is still my job, even though during the 2010s I did mostly admin duties at the school for 16-19 year old athletes where I work. Now I’m back at coaching again! I’ve been into photography for over 40 years by now. In the beginning, I shot everything, with my friends and athletes as the most common subjects. But when I look at my old negatives, I realize I shot something similar to street photography right from the start.

I’ve always liked to travel and always took a lot of photos when I did. Since 2010 I’ve traveled extensively and combined my longing to discover the world with a growing passion for street photography.

Niklas’ profile picture was taken by Urban Bäcklund.
