Swedish photographer Micha Wissén has been chronicling her life on film since she was in her teens. Her work is natural and authentic, and the moments she captures have us dreaming of balmy summer nights and coconut scented skin. This summer in Mallorca, Micha's long term boyfriend Riley Harper proposed to her on a boat, just outside of a beautiful cove. These intimate moments, and the summer that followed, were captured on film.
On Sunday, we will find you… Starting my day off at the farmers market, stocking up with local veggies for the week and ending my day with Sunday dinner amongst close friends.
Describe yourself in three words…. Spontaneous, easy-going, creative.
Favourite holiday destination… Mallorca, Spain.
A summer memory you will never forget… This summer in Mallorca, when my boyfriend proposed on a boat outside of a beautiful cove.
You have a beautiful eye, how did you get in to photography… Ah thank you so much. Once upon a time it was super popular to post photo albums from your crazy weekend on facebook. Which is where my love for documentation started. I would document every house party when I was between 16-18 and I became a mini self-made event photographer. This eventually lead to two years of concert photography which later took a turn to fashion. My love for documenting natural moments and emotions has always been a big part of me, and today although I work with fashion I try to make it feel and look as organic and natural as possible.
