Jonas Lindstroem is a photographer and director of German and Swedish descent, hailing from a small town in Germany. His love for skateboarding as an adolescent inspired his first steps as a photographer, in which he documented his peers and their aesthetics. After finishing high school, Lindstroem moved to Berlin at the age of 19 to study Visual Communication at the University of the Arts. During his studies, he was selected to study at the London College of Communications for a year abroad.
Lindstroem started his professional career within the broad context of fashion photography and has developed his directorial and filmmaking work increasingly over the years, balancing editorial, commercial, and personal artistic projects like his 15-minute short film “Truth or Dare,” which documents the narratives sourced from the imaginary minds of a global generation. Lindstroem’s vision has been proposed through his work for clients like 032c Magazine, Kenzo, Nike, YSL, Louis Vuitton and Fendi, as well as through his global campaigns for Uniqlo U and Hermes. As a director, Lindstroem has worked to create music videos for international stars such as the video for Kendrick Lamar’s song “ELEMENT.”
