"Live, and life gives you pictures" - Henri Cartier Bresson


This brilliant quote perfectly reflects my perspective of photography as a form of art. I am a photo - artist based in Stockholm, and I like capturing the ambience of the world around me through my abstract, simple-colored, and dream-like photographs. With my strong affection for design, interiors, and architecture, I strive to make my photography appealing to the eye and suitable for every wall by making the pictures more like a piece of art and detached from reality.


I received my training in Vienna and in London, and my work has been shown in various exhibitions - most recently a solo-exhibition in Austria titled ‘Freundschatten’. Please see more of my exhibitions via the ‘Portfolio - Exhibitions’ page. http://www.laurentmekul.com/?id=30


I have always had a strong interest in science that guided me through my degree in astrophysics. This passion leads me to work with scientists, whether to portrait their work or their environment or aid them in designing scientific illustrations, posters, and presentations. Examples of these collaborations can be found in my portfolio. I love to work on new, creative ideas so if you have something in mind or are interested in my photographs, please feel free to contact me.
