In his editorials and portraits Johnny Kangasniemi manage to capture an unattainable youthful melancholy, each photograph embodying an intriguing energy that pushes the boundaries of conventional fashion photography.
The Finnish born photographer, now based in Stockholm, graduated from University for the Creative Arts in London before he began working with renowned fashion photographer Camilla Åkrans. During this time Johnny laid the foundation for the delicate style that has become his trademark.
Johnny’s client list includes H&M, Tiger of Sweden, Marimekko, NK, Stylein, Ida Klamborn and Stand. He has done editorial work for such magazines as Scandinavia S/S/A/W, i-D online, Schön Magazine, Dedicate Magazine, BON Magazine, Glamour Paris, Smug, Wonderland and Elle.
In January 2017 Johnny won the award for Photographer of the Year at the Swedish Elle Awards.
