Josefin was born in 1978 in a small town in the south of Sweden. After obtaining a degree in Fine Art and Photography, at the College of Haganässkolan, Josefin moved to England in 1999, eventually settling in Newcastle in 2002.

 

Having taken a break from photography after moving to the UK, Josefin began taking photographs again in 2009. Her first images were of her natural surroundings in the ex-mining village of Easington, where she had been living, in a caravan, on a farm by the sea. Much of her early work reflects the dramatic, and often volatile landscape of the North East. Before long, she had also turned her photographic eye towards the dynamism of Newcastle's urban spaces and people.

 

Josefin's interests and early work lie in capturing the play of light and shadow on rural and urban landscapes. She is now established as a documenter of social life in the North East, with projects ranging from working with the homeless to local communities.
