Mats – Swedish Street Photographer

Why are you in Melbourne?
I am in Melbourne because my daughter is studying here as a graphic designer. I am here to visit her.
What’s been your favourite aspect about Melbourne so far?
The people. I actually write about it on my Facebook site because I had been asked, “what the best thing was about Melbourne?” I said the nice, friendly, open-minded people.  That’s the thing about being a street photographer, I can see it in people’s eyes when I meet them. Here in Melbourne they all say hello.
Is this your first time in Melbourne?
Yeah it is, but I am sure I am coming back! My daughter has lived here for two years now but I am not sure she will come home to Sweden! She loves it here!
What are you most looking forward to?
Completing my books. My street photography books. I have one for Chicago that I am 75% finished and I really want to get it finished. That is my goal.
