Some facts about Robert Ekegren. In 1982 Robert had started to work as a documentary photographer for smaller local newspapers and since then he didn’t stop carrying his camera around and took photos which made him as a full-time street photographer.
Once, he accidentally smashed his photo camera, without damaging it, into a tree and the shutter was activated. That is how Robert had accidentally taken a photo which looked like a painting. He was studying what had happened with his camera and so he became the photo artist.
“Fantasy is always persistent and is playful power who makes me forget about time and surrounding so I can focus on constant changes of the photo which is created by natural light and technique without stress” – tells Robert.
" I am attentive to the symbols and abstract signs which are recognisable. When photo is taken it is almost impossible to take the same or similar photo. It is not possible because of the quickly changing light." - he ads.
