CELEBRATING 100 YEARS OF HASSELBLAD

NATURE PHOTOGRAPHER SVEN GILLSÄTER

Swedish photographer and a friend to Victor Hasselblad, Sven Gillsäter attributed Victor’s early book Flyttfågelstråk (Migratory Bird Passage, 1935) to having a significant influence on his passion for nature photography. Seventeen years later, in 1952, while on a photo assignment on the Swedish island of Öland, Sven and Victor met and with a shared interest in nature and photography, they became close friends. As co-founder of the World Wildlife Fund (WWF) in Sweden in 1971, Sven’s passion for nature photography went hand in hand with being an early pioneer in environmental concern and sustainability.

Since the early 50’s until the day he stopped taking pictures in 1990, Sven used Hasselblad cameras to capture stunning wildlife photography from all corners of the globe, spanning from Indonesia and Australia to Antarctica to the African savanna and the coasts of the Galápagos Islands.
