I have over the last year been taking a closer look at my home country of choice, Switzerland. As a foreigner living here I guess I see things a bit different from what the Swiss do.
This series is an homage to Switzerland and the things I have learned to love and hate about the country. Yes, there are some cliches in the series, but what would a country be without them, but it’s more than cliches it’s Switzerland they way I see it, it’s my Switzerland.
Q&A with Christian Nilson
…next to my family and friends, everything to me; my way to figure out who I really am and how I fit in.
Photography and writing…
…are to me to very different disciplines, one I enjoy and one I don’t, one I’m ok at and one I’m not. I really admire people who can do both well
Who left the biggest impression on you?
As a person; my parents. As a photographer; the list is long, but the two people who have really made me think about my photography and why I do what I do are, Margot Wallard and JH Engström.
Tell us a little about yourself
I’m a 37 year old Swede, living in Switzerland with my wife and daughter. I’m in the long and bumpy process of turning my passion into something I can also live off.
