I live in Malmö, in the southest part of Sweden.
Started photography in 1969, and became a member of the Photographic Society of Malmö in 1972, and have been a member since then.
Have had a lot of assignments in the board of the Society, and was its president in the early 80's.
I have judged, and been a member of the exhibition committee, 5 international salons, organized by the Photographic Society of Malmö, during the years 1978-1986.
