Niklas Porter is the modest observer who finds beauty in even the most casual of scenarios, moments others would pass by without a second glance. With his Leica M2 slung over his shoulder everywhere he goes, Niklas lets the scene come to him rather than looking for the perfect shot. With a liking for analogue film, he walks about — preferably at dusk or dawn, when everything seems to go a little bit slower — capturing images that, as he puts it, reflect his feelings of the time and place.
Niklas lets the scene come to him rather than looking for the perfect shot.
Niklas was born in Sweden but grew up in a small town in Colorado, USA. He moved back to Falun during his teenage years. Today he splits his time between the two countries, working as a photographer and graphic designer. His interest in photography developed after he sought an emotional outlet for his creativity and emotions. This is exactly what Niklas strives to capture in his photography: true feeling. However, if you ask the photographer himself, the meaning of art really resides in the viewer. Each individual interpreting it in their own way.
