Helene Schmitz is one of Sweden’s most successful art photographers. Her work focuses on the complicated and sometimes violent relationship between humans and nature. This idea has led to several award winning books, including her latest book Borderlands.
In this short documentary by photographer and filmmaker Johan Stahlbergl, we get an insight into Helene’s thought process. We find out how her life went the way it did, and how it could’ve gone in another direction entirely.
