Personal intro. 
My name is Teva, I am 20 and I have just moved from my home in Australia and am now living with my family in Sweden. All I have at the moment is my photography, no job, no study, no plans, just life. It’s a strange situation not having anything on your plate, I like to be busy and now I have all this time to spend doing whatever I choose. I have decided to work on creating a personal series dealing aspects of childhood nostalgia, having returned to this country I used to live in as a child and how much it has changed and the somewhat distorted memories. I would also like to travel and meet/collaborate with other photographers and learn and grown as one myself. There is so much richness to be found in life from experiences and knowledge in the world abroad; I don’t want to miss it!

What did you want to become in the childhood? I didn’t want to grow up. But if I had to, I think I wanted to become either an artist or live with the animals.

What’s been your greatest accomplishment as a photographer so far? Deciding to shoot film over digital. After finishing one year of study, it was clear, film was like love with light and I had so much more passion again. I’m all gooey on the inside again now.

What do you want to achieve? A happy and humble life being able to share what I love through my work.

What do you think is the greatest power of photography? The power to see more than words can describe.

If you could give one piece of advice to fellow photographers, what would it be? Don’t wait for things to happen, don’t leave your camera at home and be adventurous.
