Colour TALKS #3

I mitt #3 Colour TALKS, har jag glädjen att möta Richard von Hofsten

en kär vän och kreativ partner.

Richard är en mångbegåvad kreatör med ett imponerande CV inom

fotografi och filmskapande.

Jag räknar honom till en av de upplysta själar som via sitt konstnärliga

arbete påminner oss om naturens viktiga betydelse.

Richards vackra fotografi finns också närvarande i min nya bok

The Word of Colours.

In my #3 Colour TALKS, I am happy to meet Richard von Hofsten,

a dear friend and creative partner. The Talk is in Swedish,

but I add Richards's biography in English and the teaser for the

movie Aurora Borealis.

Richard is a multi-talented artist with an impressive CV of

Photography and movie making.

I count him into one of the enlightened creative souls that reminds

us of the importance of connecting with nature.

Richards beautiful photography is also present in my new book

The Word of Colours.

Movie Teaser Aurora Borealis — English subtitles


Richard von Hofsten completed his photographic education in 2009 at Bergh’s School

of Communication in Stockholm. Since graduation, he has conducted the majority of

self-initiated projects with a strong focus on storytelling. His theatrical talent takes its strongest expression in his art photo project “The Imaginarium of Carl Linnaeus”

and photo complimenting the fairy tale artist John Bauer.

With his debut exhibition "The Imaginarium of Carl Linnaeus," Richard has proved that everything is possible, as long as you know what you want to achieve with the creative - stick to your vision. Despite setbacks, including a stolen camera and defections from employees due to the small budget and that the project was originally considered too ambitious and time-consuming, von Hofsten took his project further and completed the whole period of the two years of work.

After the premiere of the show in Uppsala in 2013, the work was selected to participate

in Sweden's representation at the World Expo "Horticulture Exposition 2014" In a million

city of Qingdao, China.

Later that year, it showed again under "Business of Design Week" in Hong Kong.

Thanks to the wide exposure the work received acclaim, 'The Imaginarium of

Carl Linnaeus' was counted amongst one of the largest debut exhibitions ever for

a single Swedish photographer and artist.

With the new exhibition "Aurora Borealis," a creative collaboration with textile artist Charlotte Rosenberg Bosten, von Hofsten required to create iconic emblems of the season's shifts as he perceived them, portrayed as significant for the respective

seasons by the scenery, costumes, and lighting.

He styled the scenes himself before shooting them. Hair creator Peter Hägelstam from

Bjorn Axen created advanced hairstyling and freelance makeup artist Agnes Arnell.

The extensive work included a winter trip to Abisko to photograph the northern lights

and mist-shrouded apple orchards in the sunset. The expressions in the pictures zero

in on Charlotte's textiles and the story around them. Together they form a unique

depiction of natural variations with human interaction.
