Roger Turesson, multiple award-winning photojournalist, tells the stories behind his photos.
About why time and planning are important to achieve quality, his drive and respect for the people he photographs and we also hear about a snapshot that could have been his last.
Roger Turesson works as a photographer at Dagens Nyheter, where he was also the imaging manager for a period of time. Roger has won the Picture of the Year competition on several occasions. In 2013, together with Josefine Hökerberg, he won the Grand Journalist Award for the documentary series “The Beggars in Stockholm”.
2019 was Rogers’ big year. That is when he won Picture of the Year with the picture of Greta Thunberg in Madrid. But it didn’t end there. He also won the title of Press Photographer of the Year and six more awards. In other words, we have a highly qualified photographer with us on stage.
