Aorta is the duo Marco Grizelj and Kristian Krän. They joined forces at the School of Photography at Gothenburg University.
They graduated in 1997 and for the following five years they worked almost exclusively with foreign clients. During a part of that period, they were based in Paris. Aorta’s signature work is semi-documentary fashion photography, where their work is both inartificial and imaginative. The duo likes to see things cinematically and their photographs are often shot on location. They enjoy entering the idea process at an early stage and they prefer to do their own retouching.
Their commercial clients include Panasonic, Absolut Vodka, Volvo, Renault, Vattenfall, SFR France and Kosta Boda. Editorial assignments has come from 125, Wired, Café, Elle, Bon and NK Stil.
Aorta are currently based in Gothenburg.
