Elis Hoffman


Perfection is not real and nobody is. Some pretend to be and almost everybody is trying to become.

In Sweden, we have a tradition of going to different venues and dance, to what we call dance band music. These dances are often located in small towns in the countryside.

A so-called dance band plays the music and the songs are often about love, heartache and memories from the past.

I am drawn to places and subjects where people show real emotions. I work with documentary photography but I create a world of my own. A world where everything is real. For me, people are most beautiful when they dare to show their vulnerability.
