ECAL Lectures (June 2018)
Jonas Lindstroem, Photographer & Director, London & Berlin
Wednesday 6 June at 6pm, IKEA Auditorium, ECAL
Jonas Lindstroem is a photographer and director of German and Swedish
descent, hailing from a small town in Germany. His love for
skateboarding as an adolescent inspired his first steps as a
photographer, in which he documented his peers and their aesthetics.
After finishing high school, Lindstroem moved to Berlin at the age of 19
to study Visual Communication at the University of the Arts. During his
studies, he was selected to study at the London College of
Communications for a year abroad. Lindstroem started his professional
career within the broad context of fashion photography and has developed
his directorial and filmmaking work increasingly over the years,
balancing editorial, commercial, and personal artistic projects like his
15-minute short film Truth or Dare which documents the
narratives sourced from the imaginary minds of a global generation.
Lindstroem’s vision has been proposed through his work for clients like
032c Magazine, Kenzo, Nike, YSL, Fendi and Louis Vuitton, as well as
through his global campaigns for Uniqlo U and Hermès. As a director,
Lindstroem has worked to create music videos for international stars
such as the video for Kendrick Lamar’s song ELEMENT.
