Agneta is captivated by the little ant which, when viewed closely via the macro lens, transforms into an almost human individual. She likes to photograph our beautiful nature and she enjoys playing with the light in the arranged portrait.
But it is probably still the unplanned street photo that fascinates her the most.
“It is a reflection of life itself, the unconscious and the genuine. “She also sees it as an important task to create history for posterity, through her images.
She has been around photography since her late teens. Back then, she invested in a used Hasselblad analog camera and portrayed children at the Public Pre-School while working on the project Enlarge the Little Ones. The analog camera has long been replaced by the digital one. Over the years she has had several exhibitions. Now she is one of four photographers working on the project called Moment, which aims to document the city of Gothenburg and its people for 100 years. She has recently released an online course in street photography for the Mothership How to Succeed in Street Photography.
She has chosen to call her presentation “Playing a Role”. She believes that street photography is a kind of street theater without a director and script where we all have a role. It can be a lead role, supporting role, extra or an audience. Behind her camera, Agneta herself becomes a spectator and she wants to show with her pictures how she chooses which moments of the play she wants to immortalize and why.
