kristian s-granquist art print


Working for more than 30 years as a commercial photographer, Kristian’s artistic approach to his work is deeply rooted in a meticulous methodology, mastering photographic craftsmanship and zooming in on an object's essence. Tight composition, textures, shape from light are key components that play an essential role in all his work. 

“I want to zoom in on the essence of an object. I try to portrait an object, a person or place that I am working with and want to enhance specific character traits. I try to strip away unnecessary noise and symbolism and focus on the object in all its beauty and simplicity”.

An example of this is seen in his work ‘Flowers’. A collection of withered cut off flowers picked up from the streets in the neighbourhood. A curious project showing us beauty randomly found from decaying flowers portrayed through his lens.
