Joakim Blomquist is a Swedish art photographer and Art Director based in Gothenburg, Sweden. He is fascinated how man interacts with nature and the imprints we leave behind. With the camera as a tool and a subtle sense of humor, he reflects over the human role in nature and public spaces. If you take a closer look you will discover small details and episodes in his often magnificent sceneries.
Joakim Blomquist has a Bachelor’s degree from the School of Design and Crafts in Gothenburg and has studied Graphic Design at Camberwell College of Arts in London. During his time studying graphic design he started to use his camera in different projects, he became almost possessed and the camera became like an extra part of his body during certain times. In recent years he has developed his photographic expression to where he stands today. His first exhibition “Promenade” in 2012 was a turning point in his career and the start for a series of exhibitions in Sweden and abroad.
