Strong and useful

~ Viktor Andersson

Three words to describe your practice?

If I were to say movement, it would be strong and useful. If I would say… I want to say say that actually moves into my photography work as well, because I want my imagery to be strong. And I want it to be useful. Because I am portrait’ing people… a photo of a person, I don’t think is necessarily a good portrait if it isn’t useful for them. Whether it is to portray who they are, or their business, or even being in the gallery… it has to have a use. And that I think that comes a lot from… I’ve been doing Parkour for the better part of my life now. And it hit me very hard with this idea of being useful, being [a] helping hands for people. And as I moved into photography, that was what I took my movement practice of being, trying to get a fit body to be able to help people. And took that idea into the photos, that I want my photography to help people in whatever I can help them. If it’s to portray a message, or just have them feel good about themselves or whatever it might be. So I think drawing useful, goes into both— with a stretch.

In the podcast, I talk with movement enthusiasts to learn who they are, what they do, and why they do it. I’m interested in the nature and philosophy of movement and in exploring themes like independence, self-direction, and human excellence. My interests color each conversation and provide some structure to Movers Mindset. But since I like to take the scenic route, every conversation ends up going somewhere unique.
