Mats Reslow

I am a photographer living  on the countryside in the south of Sweden.  I have been painting and creating mostly abstract paintings all my life, but since 2016 I found  a passion for photography. 

I started with mainly minimalistic black&white photos with architectural and coastal motifs.  Three  years ago during the pandemic I  started  to explore and photograph local woodlands,  which was challenging  but very interesting. I guess I needed to come outdoor often and quickly, tired of endless video meetings in my main business at home. 

Photographing in the forest turned out to be very challenging but interesting.

Finding an interesting composition in forests was quite difficult in the beginning. But I spend a lot of time walking in local forest together with my dog and camera to find interesting scenes and I slowly learned to find the right weather and light conditions.

As I live in a rural part of Skåne county, most of my landscape photos are taken from there. Most forest photos  are from local forests. For example, Torupsskogen, Häckeberga and Bökeberg, are located about  2-15 km from my home.

To take photographs in forests is for me is meditative. I work very slowly and do not take so many photos on a hike. I enjoy the nature together with my dog  and to explore the surroundings and different compositions before trying to create  an image with my camera. 

I enjoy working with my images  from capture, to editing and finally printing.A large and essential part of my work is the editing phase of the work in order to  express the intentional atmosphere and mood of the image.

I also made a lot of effort on the printing process. I have a home print studio with 17 inch and 24-inch printers. Since 2020 I work with Fujifilm medium format cameras which allow me to make large prints

I have a collaboration with Kliger Art Gallery in Lund where some of my photographs are exhibit.
