I’ve been in Sweden for almost a year now, and I can firmly say that one of my favourite days was when me made a trip to Borås Zoo. In recent years I’ve become a bit obsessed with bears, so was madly excited when we arrived at their expansive enclosure. It was the first time I’d had the opportunity to photography brown bears, and it was nothing short of exhilarating.
The forests that encircle Hagfors, the small town where Sebastian’s family live, are populated with bears. You experience a wholly different feeling when you’re walking through the trees in that part of Sweden. You know that there’s every possibility that something bigger and more dangerous than yourself is following your every move.
