Oscar Nilsson
Photos from the ambitious, globe-trotting Swede.
Frames 1y

When he moved from Gothenburg to California several years ago, Oscar Nilsson knew he had to capture his surroundings somehow – which led him to pick up his first camera.

Now, the 26-year-old Swede counts the likes of Sony, Toyota and Coca-Cola as clients, which leads us to the latest edition of Frames. Presenting us with a solid collection of nature across Europe and North America, this is the sort of photography that’ll make you wanna strap up your hiking boots and leave your nine-to-five.

Oscar is currently living in San Francisco, but tells us that as soon as he acquires a van, he’ll be on the road again. Shouts to Oscar and his liberating lifestyle – follow his continuing worldly travels over on Instagram:
