Gustav Gustafsson

I think if ghosts took pictures, they’d probably end up looking like Gustav Gustafsson’s photos. Gustav is a Swedish photographer, though he was originally trained as a welder, and has no real photography training. He also likes collecting postcards, and playing bass in his band, Les Nipples.
What I particularly like is the dreamy quality to all of his photos, none of them looking quite real. I also like how they’re washed out, and the colors are muted, something that I usually don’t do when I take pictures. Very inspirational work.
