About Me

I am greatly fascinated by history, art and differences in culture. I spent most of my spare time buried in books on a diverse range of subjects, ranging from neurology and spirituality to history and fiction.

From an early age I have had an immense interest in visual expression, with a great appreciation for various kinds of imagery. I take pictures professionally, although I certainly regard my photographic practice as an existential endeavor. I also recently finished my Bachelors Degree in graphic design.

Within the past two years I have engaged myself in various healing practices—I suppose you might call it—Yoga, cold therapy, et cetera. I find the practice of presence very meaningful and I enjoy sharing spiritual insights.

If you are curious about my images feel free to have a look on my IG @svendsenzzzz
