About

 
Olof Jarlbro was born in 1978 in the town of Helsingborg, in the south of Sweden. At the age of 19 Olof made his military service at The Lapland Ranger Regiment in Kiruna. This is one of the world’s most northern military training locations, in Europe’s last wilderness. Were, winter temperatures average -20° C (= -5° F) with extreme temperature as low as -45° C (= -50° F). The climate is one of the toughest in the world, and the training one of the toughest in the Swedish Army. After Olof finished his army service, he directly took the plane to Nepal, to climb the Himalayas. During this trip he started making pictures and after he returned in Sweden he decided to become a photographer. At the age of 22, he left Sweden and went to New York to study at the International Center of Photography. A couple of years later he moved to Prague to study at FAMU – The Academy of Performing Arts in Prague. He spent years in Nepal covering the civil war and political changes but also the people’s daily life. The people’s stories motivate him to photograph, never the conflict itself. In the end of 2012, Olof crossed the borders to Syria illegally to cover the insurgent FSA-Free Syrian Army struggle against the regime. The photographs from the war in Syria got published in the book Syria: The War Within. In that book Olof depicts the rebellion’s struggles on various frontlines around Syria’s largest city Aleppo. The great amount of people affected by the war in Syria, led to the production of the book: Refuge were he follows the life of Syrian refugees in Bulgaria. His other published books include The Falling Kingdom, Stone Factory and Nepal & Mao.

Olof Jarlbro Photography produce visually stories for magazines, dailies and online news portals around the globe. But our core focus is production of books together with exhibitions and lectures that brings awareness of various global & social issues.

Refuge: takes us to the war in Syria and to the safe boarders of Europe, in the Bulgarian refugee camps. Despite the absence of war, the conditions in the camps are harsh and the future for the refugees seems not as bright as they have imagined it before crossing the borders of Europe. Bulgaria was not by any means ready to handle hundreds of refugees, certainly not many thousands. Jarlbro’s photographs depict the life in the camps, his sincere and straight-forward approach to people gets him inside the refugees’ small quarters they call home. In Jarlbro’s fifth book he documents every aspect of being in a refuge premises and being a refugee in Europe, photographing people’s sorrow and searching for glimmers of hope in their grim situation.

The book Nepal and Mao takes us to a country in which peace was declared many years ago. But somehow there is still tension in the country. Old royalist that won’t step down from army posts, constant strikes and protests in the capital. Some regions with ethnic majorities have started to question the Maoist and Nepal’s control and to strive after their own state and independence. In Jarlbro’s third book about Nepal, he travels across the country in buses and off-road vehicles meeting Maoists at their camps in the jungle and up in mountain, following the tensions throughout the country, visiting communist rally and riots. Underneath the chaos and political standpoint, Jarlbro photographs do not reveal the soldier but the person behind the uniform.

  • About: A prolonged crisis in Ukraine began on 21 November 2013, when then-president Viktor Yanukovych suspended preparations for the implementation of an association agreement with the European Union.

An ensuing political crisis and Russian military intervention in the Ukrainian autonomous region of Crimea resulted in the annexation of Crimea by Russia on 18 March 2014. Subsequently, unrest in Donetsk and Luhansk oblasts of Ukraine evolved into a war between the post-revolutionary Ukrainian government and pro-Russian insurgents, supported and often assisted by the Russian military and special forces.
