Welcome to my homepage. I'm an independent, internationally working freelance photographer and former pianist currently living in Scandinavia. Due to my acquaintance with the music business my photography focuses strongly on artist portraits but I also do business or private portraits, advertising, products and documentary photography. Fine Art though, has in the later years become an increasingly important part of my work. 

I have a Master Degree in music from The Sibelius Academy 1997 and private studies (post graduate level) in  photography in Frankfurt am Main 2013 - 2016. 

Member of the Swedish Association of Professional Photographers. The Holy Art Artist since 2023.

Winner of the Fine Art Category of The 21st. Edition of Pollux Awards, Barcelona 2024.

My art is represented at art museums of and private collections around Europe.. 

Artistic Statement

Marcus Boman’s work focuses on the inner bonds between human and nature. His scientific curiosity and interest in prehistoric religion, panpsychism and the so called Umwelt theory are important sources for his inspiration. To try to understand and get a glimpse of how other lifeforms perceive our world he uses different digital techniques to reach realms unperceivable to humans which are then interpreted visually. His art proposes thereby an alternative understanding of the world that surrounds us. He wants to show an alternative world where traditional dualism such as good and evil, dark and light, masculine and feminine do not stand in opposition to each other, but constitute natural and complementary parts of us all. The images are not a depiction of an external reality, but serve as a medium to convey an inner experience.
