I’m not an art historian.

I lack one term of studies to have a degree in Art history.

I don’t belong to any university (though I did study at Gotlands Högskola/Uppsala University), or other institution dealing with art or art history.

What I am, however is – a now retired portrait/wedding photographer with an interest mainly in analyzing b/w photography – and art grotesque.

This blog will contain my own, semi-academic views on art grotesque in various styles, time periods and art forms throughout history.

Welcome – and enjoy!


This is me, sharing my fascination with the grotesque, the macabre, the disfigured, the ugly and the dark – mainly in art and literature, but I might quite possibly also indulge into the twists of the human mind.


Feel free to read, share and comment – I appreciate it.
