An Interview with Claes Thorberntsson by Beata Moore

Heaven by Claes Thorberntsson

Claes Thorberntsson is a professional photographer. He was born and raised in Uddevalla Bohuslän. He bought his first camera in 2009 and since 2015 runs his own full time photographic business since 2015. The proximity and love for the Bohu coast meant that he quickly found his subjects around the rugged cliffs, where the waves often caress the polished slabs. Claes' style depicts what he sees in nature, in a graphically well-thought-out way. He likes strong compositions and to use water to create lines and patterns in an artistic way.

An Interview with Caterina Mrenes by Beata Moore

Caterina is a hobby photographer based in Southern Germany and working as a label manager in the classical music industry. She started playing the piano at 5 and for twenty years that was her profession. In 2002 she received a scholarship at the Music University of Stuttgart, but in 2006 she abruptly decided to give up the profession of piano playing. It took some two and half more years to find her way in a new profession (that of cultural management) which then brought with it what she hadn’t had before in her entire life: free time to use it the way she chooses it. She invested that time in mountaineering with the aim to make photographic documentation of her mountain tours. At some point, photography got the upper hand. It took however some more years till her photographic skills made a substantial leap in quality. read more.
