Max Modén born in Stockholm 1974.
Found my fathers old darkroom in boxes in the basement when I was 12 years, that’s when I decided to be a photographer.
After school I assisted photographers in 8 years in Stockholm, New York and Paris. I started my own business in 2004, mostly fashion and commercial photography.
Working with clients like HM, Marc O’ Polo, C&A and others most of my work I do abroad.
In 2014 i made a music video with a ballerina, we decided to make a still shoot and feel in love with working her.
I believe it was the contrast of working with someone with total control of her body and movement that was so appealing to me.
With my commercial/editorial work I drive to find the natural feeling, especially working a lot with kids. In my ballerina project I can direct the ballerina to do what ever I think is best for the image. Their skills never stops to amaze me.
All this images are with Ella Persson, ballerina with the Mikhalovsky Ballet in St.Petersburg.
