Today Mattias is in Sundsvall to begin the project called The Water Journey (Vattenresan) in collaboration with Svenskt Vatten! Mattias will travel around Sweden's 21 counties to photograph important lakes and streams during one year that will result in a book. Besides meeting the press at each stop, he will have small "workshops" where anyone is welcome to attend, ask questions and briefly watch him work. Follow @vattenresan on instagram to see some behind the scenes and where he is off to next!

"Vamizi" on SVT tomorrow!

It's showtime! Our latest documentary is rolling out! First up is SVT2 in Sweden, tomorrow night (Aug 3) at 20.00. It will be in Swedish. Stay tuned for more releases world wide!

It takes place on Vamizi, the largest island in the Quirimbas archipelago. Its relative isolation from mainland Mozambique has preserved its natural beauty and wildlife. It has magnificent coral reefs and is a unique breeding ground for whales, dolphins, turtles and sharks. We follow a team of scientists as we explore the significance of these reefs and how to protect them from the damage of looming threats.
