Camilla Akrans is a Swedish-born photographer, and her Scandinavian roots are evident in her work. The pure, pared backed imagery is centered in femininity, graphic lines, flawless craftsmanship and understated elegance.
As a woman in a male dominated industry, she has maintained her distinctive vision and thrived. Her photographs have been exhibited worldwide, from Sweden to Spain, the United States, Italy, Britain and China, among other countries.
In her own words: “I’m trying to depict a thought. I portray women the way that I myself would like to be perceived. I want to be seen in every aspect of my being. The beautiful as well as the thorny, and the rough. Women are a little like flowers.”
Her philosophy is articulated in her favorite quote from Anne Brontë. “But he who dares not grasp the thorn should never crave the rose.”
