About Malin Sjoberg

Malin Sjoberg grew up in Stockholm, Sweden and holds a BA in International Relations (Boston University) and BFA in Photography (Art Institute of Boston). Her main interests range from vernacular photography to documentary photography and contemporary uses of historic processes otherwise known as antiquarian avant-garde.

Her mother always took many photographs of her growing up, putting together all beautiful photo-albums. Always intrigued how a photo of something can trigger all these other memories, absent from the image itself, she began to take pictures and made photo-albums herself. One of the earliest ones is filled with faded colour snapshots from Hong Kong, which she took while traveling around South-East Asia with her family at the age of ten.

Growing up in Stockholm, she never really considered being a photographer, and had not thought of it as a profession.

It was only in her late teens, when she saw a book of photographs by Walker Evans that Malin realized that photography could be something more than that previously seen. She remembers being stunned by the images' subtle, quiet, and penetrating reflections of everyday life in 1930's America; they resonated far deeper than anything previously seen in terms of photojournalism.

'In retrospect, this must have been when I fell in love with photography, because I ended up buying the book, which at that time was way outside my budget.'
