DC: Your pictures have a sensation of free air, a breeze of colors and flavors that go from the Scandinavian look to the Mediterranean, what connects you to these places?
AW: I grew up next to the ocean. In a Small town called Helsingborg. I feel very at home whenever I am close to the sea and out in nature. And I definitely think that reflects in my Photos.
DC: Being a lover of vintage clothes and Jewlery, do you feel like an old and wise soul?
AW: I actually dont. Maybe wise but certinaly not an old soul haha.
DC: Your sister and family are very important to you, what advice would you give the young crowd about this values?
AW: They are. They mean everything to me. I lost my dad when I was only 8 years old and that really gave me a perspective of how fragile life is and how you never should take anything nor anyone for granted. Cliche but so fucking true. Losing a family member is something that I can’t put into words on how that feels.
DC: Swimming every day and power walking, keep you up and energetic all the time, what do you use your acupuncture mat for precisely?
AW: I use it for my sore back. I worked in grocery store for 5 years and that pretty much destroyed my back. My acupuncture mat really helps my muscles relax – trying to use it 20 mins everyday. I really recommend it.
DC: Believing in yourself has made you raise your voice to set examples for others to do so, what would be a powerful message that you would like to transmit?
AW: Speak your mind and speak out against things that harm other humans. I would personally say it is a part of your job. I see it as a part of my job to make others aware of what I think is wrong. If you do not fight the problem, You are a part of the problem.
