Swedish photographer Gustav Adbåge isn’t afraid of the dark, oh no. In fact, Gustav uses the darkness almost as an accessory to his camera, taking pictures in the pitch-black dead of night with a super bright flash. The results of this are nothing short of magical, with his flash exploding and splashing all over fences, branches, snowflakes and swans to the delight of his fans (me)
He’s not just a master of nocturnal photography, Gustav also has a commendable series of portraits of his friendly-looking Swedish friends and a truly super collection of Polaroids which you can look at here.
