Who is Jonas Anhede?

Instagram is my playground where I explore photography freely. I try to capture simple, emotional and storytelling images. The feel is always more important than the technical stuff behind the picture. My style is often colourful and graphic, but at the same time minimalistic and clean. Or, that’s what I’m trying to accomplish anyway. (he smiles)

I enjoy photo walks, both – alone and in the company. Sometimes just around my small hometown in Sweden, and sometimes around the world. There are pictures to be found everywhere. Near or far.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

I work mainly as a motion designer, but photography has been taking a larger role this last year. In the future, I’m hoping to do 50/50 between motion design and photography. My motion design work helps evolve my photography and vice versa. Color, composition, and feel apply to both.

The stories behind the best photos

1. Wake up

2. Irresistible

3. Advent Calendar

4. Nangijala

5. 14:42

15803741_1642299666063602_7137143345574313984_nPlanned this picture carefully via different photography apps. I knew that at 14:42 the shadows would fall directly towards me, so I drove from Sweden early morning to this place. Made it just in time, and I was lucky enough to capture a random person standing there completing my image.

6. Ben
