Par Bengtsson

Born and raised in Sweden, Pär split his time between metropolitan Stockholm and the rocky countryside of Eksjö. It was these early influences of the city’s busy, design-rich culture and the idyllic serenity of his family’s summer farmhouse that shaped his unique photographic style. Trained at Brooks Institute of Photography in California and Richard Avedon’s studio in Manhattan, he honed his craft professionally. After working as an editorial photographer for Elle Décor- Sweden, Lanliv and Femina Magazine, he returned to the US to live with his wife and two children. From interiors to food, Pär has amassed an impressive and wide-ranging body of work. “I love to have fun on set,” he says, “and why wouldn’t I? It’s what I love!”
