About me

Emelie Ohlsson, born in 1987 in Helsingborg.

I grew up in a city without traffic lights (Båstad), but I’m totally in love with New York. I think I can do what I want and even though my foot is hurt, I plan to run a marathon. I am a thrilled and excited girl who has special laughter that easily makes others start laughing. I'm one of the tsunami survivors in Khao Lak 2004, and that’s my biggest driving force, my sister Paulina never came home, and with her name tattooed on my arm I’m often reminded to follow my dreams.

I’m passionate about human rights and the vulnerable in society; I’m not afraid to correct people who are offensive or xenophobic. I am honest, determined and I have an open heart for everyone (besides racists, I'm not your photographer).

I love TV shows, and I know all the episodes from “Friends” by heart, I see myself as a mix between Chandler and Phoebe. I love science fiction and laugh until I cry to Seinfeld. Since I was a child, I have loved TV games, and I still play as often as I can, sometimes even computer games in periods. Everything I do, I do it with a lot of emotion and power, photography is my way of reflecting strength and emotions, and I think it’s the absolute best job ever.
