Beyond the Camera, Beyond the Fantasy by Tommy Ingberg | Inspirational Portfolio [47]


Sweden photographer Tommy Ingberg, has been preoccupied with photography since he was 15 years old when he got his first system camera, a Praktika with two lenses. What followed were several years of intensive photography. With an insatiable curiosity Tommy was soon familiar with several areas of photography, portraits, concert photography, street photography, nature photography and everything in between. Strongly influenced by the widespread opinion that all good photographic art is created directly in the camera, a piece of the puzzle was always missing. The motives he sought simply didn’t exist, at least not in reality.
Only when Tommy Ingberg allowed the images to grow beyond the camera, the pieces fell into place and he could refine his style further.

Today he works predominantly with black and white, surrealistic photo montages. Tommy does his photography in a studio as well as out in the field, and then combine the source material into images on the computer. His pictures start off with a feeling, a story, a riddle for the viewer to think about. He strives for simple, scaled back compositions with few elements, where every part adds to the story, but where there are still gaps for the viewer to fill.
