John HellstromDr. John Hellström is a master photographer and printmaker from Sweden. He has an extensive experience in coaching world-class athletes and a Ph.D. in Sports Science researching expert performance.

That experience has John used to improve as a photographer and printmaker over the years. It has led to many victories in print competitions, and master photography qualifications in Sweden, Europe, and USA.

"The paper choice is a critical part of the artist's statement. I therefore do shootouts between different papers using the lightbooth in my studio. Whatever paper that fits the photograph best, it’s always from within the top-quality Canson® Infinity range."
