(Gerhard Jörén)

I am based mainly in Bangkok and recently Yangon has become my second home.  I am working as an independent photographer and filmmaker, focusing on human-interest documentation and corporate work.
From early years, travelling has been my passion and the discovery of people behaviour has been the main focus since I left Sweden, my motherland, back in 1982.

New York was the first stop on my discovery tour, which was my base for more then 5 years, while I learned my trade and worked for mainly Scandinavian media.

The travel bug and the need to find a warmer place uprooted me and by pure coincidence I arrived in Hong Kong the day after Black Monday, in 1987. From Hong Kong I set out on many interesting journeys, mainly in Asia. The camera was a trusted companion, which opened many closed doors.

Over the next 27 years I mainly lived in Hong Kong and Thailand, except a stunt in Stockholm.
