Gustav Gräll, a freelance photographer based in Stockholm, works mainly for publications in Sweden, putting the country’s different seasons, buildings, and people into focus. It was after years of travelling that he realized the best pictures were at home. The Swedish saying Gräv där du star (“Dig where you stand”) means to look for the possibilities around you—which can feel like a cliché. In this case, it was just that simple.
For an outsider looking in, Gräll’s photography feels as if you are there walking with a local guide, catching glimpses of life and winter in Sweden. Featuring mostly primary colours, it evokes an “accidentally Wes Anderson” style of work.
