My name is Sara Lindborg, and I am currently studying graphic design at Prakticum in southern Finland. I am 25 years of age, and I am really interested in the art of photography. My passion for photography is the main reason why I joined NU21, and the three photographs I took – stand by the quote ”Distance and Closeness”. The meaning behind the two first pictures is that the person in the photos is present physically while daydreaming, maybe looking into the future or perhaps the past. The picture with the shadows is meant to create a feeling of horror – the person is followed by her own shadows, trapped.

Hi, I’m Kim Warren and I study photography at LBS Kreativa Gymnasium Göteborg. I’m 17 years old and as a photographer I want to improve my technique and creativity whilst also creating more opportunities for myself to work with photography, so that I can express myself more and better through my work. I think my photo series speaks quite a lot for itself. It captures a feeling of distance, but it also puts a slight focus on nature and the distance that I feel we as humans have taken farther from it, wanting to bring it closer to us again


I am Max Jacobsen, a photography student from Gothenburg. I like to experiment with photography to try and capture different emotions. 

In my project I tried to capture the feelings of closeness and distance by using different lighting. I used warm lights in a welcoming and atmospheric way to capture the feeling of closeness. The colder picture symbolizes a cold winter afternoon, which makes you want to distance yourself from it. 

I think it’s important in these times to remind yourself of the warmth of friends and family, it’s important to stay connected while keeping a distance.  


I always wanted to make photography as easy as possible. Before, I was looking at photographs with one-dimensional thoughts, like watching a painting of just black and grey fields. Lately this has changed. My name is Madde, I am 17 years old. While making this project, I decided to interpret the theme in three different ways: time, space and distance. Each photograph is different but they still fit with one another. Today I can see the story behind the arts. The brushstrokes on a painting are clearer than before, you learn how to appreciate the details.

Bild 5 – VERA ÖRSÅ

Hello there! I’m Vera, a 17- year-old Swedish speaking Finn from Porvoo, Finland. I’ve been photographing seriously for about a year. 

Commercial and nature photography are my favorite types of photography.
Graphic design and entrepreneurship are also big interests of mine. I’m the co-founder of a digital marketing agency where I’m responsible for the visual identity of the companies we work with.
In the future, I’d like to work as a commercial photographer and run my own design agency.

I paint because I can’t write…  my dear friend pointed out, and I think that is a good attitude. I do not feel that it is necessary to write about my work since I took the photos by themselves, not intending for them to lean on any words or phrases etc.

I think that the artist has a responsibility to present work that challenges the audience; I think that when art is explained it loses its value in the eye of the beholder and might as well be called a soulless product.

I doubt my art is thought-provoking, but I follow my principles anyway.

Bild 7 – Camilla Kjellberg

I’m someone who is still figuring out what they want in life. While trying to figure this out I found interest in photography. I live with my family in the center of a small town in Sweden. My name is Camilla Kjellberg. I’m 17 and I have recently found out that photos are a good way of expressing your feelings, and that’s something i’ve enjoyed working with. I interpret the theme Distance and Closeness like you had someone dear that passed away and you had to let go of something important.


I have studied in the field of Applied Arts (interior crafts) for three years.

Nature is very important to  me and my work. Nature is often my inspiration. The forms and colours, the light and feeling from nature I use in my different projects.

My photographs have reflected the past year, the year 2020, when  we have had to keep  distance from each other and longed  for closeness.

Despite the past year and our regulations, the fact that we have had the possibility to walk in nature shows the existence of persistence  and at the same time a movement forward towards new opportunities is also created.

In the distance you can find space for thoughts, for new creative solutions and angles for new creation. It gives a sense of opportunity ahead and positive belief in the future. That  faith  reduces the distance and brings us closer together.
