Johan Fowelin (born 1955 in Lund, Sweden)
“The photographic journey started when I borrowed my fathers camera and darkroom”.
Soon the passion grew and Johan Fowelin attended his first formal education at Christer Strömholm photographic school in 1975. Followed by six years at Södertälje Konsthall, working with art reproduction and visual communication. In 1982 he opened his own business combining photography with studies in art and architecture. Later appointed by University College of Arts, Crafts and Design in Stockholm, he was examined in 1991 with a masters degree in photography.
Since then Johan Fowelin has been working for more than two decades in the field of art, architecture and advertising. Always with a strong creative integrity. “But art is not a solitary thing. Collaboration is essential and extremely rewarding. Without my art directors, agents, architects, editors and curators I would be nothing”. Johan Fowelin is commissioned by companies, galleries, publishers, agencies and institutions nationally and internationally.
