Most of my professional life I have been a scientist with a doctorate in microbiology 1982 and been professor in Microbial ecology at Lund University, Sweden. I have also worked for longer periods at the University of Massachusetts in Amherst, USA 1983-1985 and at Universidad de Alicante, Spain 2003-2008. Furthermore, I have had cooperation and research projects in Central America. I decided to retire early in 2009.
My photography interest began as a young teenager in the early 1960´s. At that time mainly in black and white and good training in dark room work. After my retirement I have been able to spend more time on photography and developed my autodidact photo knowledge with the courses The photographic image I and II at Malmö University, Sweden, which been fun, useful and instructive.
