Severus was born in Jämtland in northern Sweden. Snapping pictures since she got her first camera from her grandfather at an early age.
Never took a photo class, studied art and painted instead. Figured out that the only thing that went fast enough for her mind,
was taking pictures - not painting them. Loves natural light and to capture everyday magic.
Sponsored by Olympus since 2009. Had the cover of the biggest photography magazine in Sweden and a solo exhibit at the biggest photography happening in The Nordic countries and released two photo books at Modernista publishing before her 25th birthday. She also ended up in Italy and Germany shooting covers for popstars (and sometimes sleeping in a tent in the Sahara desert, after climbing a mountain to an oasis for a morning shoot).
She's done advertising campaigns for many different types of companies and taken thousands of press portraits for writers, researchers, politicans and artists and shot for several book projects for the last 15 years. When she's not taking pictures she's a nerd in economics and history at Stockholm University. Before finding her academic home in economic history she studied political science, sociology, history of ideas, global ethics - and greek tragedies. .
