Since a couple of years Lennart has photographed the nature and culture in Sápmi. Actualy it all began when he worked as a project manager at VisitSápmi where the Website was in need for picture material to promote Sápmi as a destination for visitors..
“-As a host I have for many years guided photographers from around the worldon their visit to Sápmi and seen their amazing pictures published in all kinds of world media. Many inspiring, pleasant and very talented professional photographers who really manages to capture the magnificent and beautiful Sápmi in their images. Many have been generous in sharing their experience and knowledge to me while we were out on assignment and step by step, I have learned from the best.
As a Sámi person, I often see how my culture is exploited in media and tourism. I often see description of Sápmi based on stereotypes and ignorance. Sápmi is anything but stereotypical – there is an enormous wealth of culture, spectacular scenery and cool people and my ambition is to take you off the beaten path and share it with you. This is my Sápmi!
I want to tell you about my life and at the same time give nature and the animals a voice – while I want self-own my own story when I come home with a memory card full of pictures. I’m constantly exploring Sápmi with the camera in hand and I’m passionate about constantly develop my own photography.”
