Jacob Balzani Lööv is an Italian-Swedish photographer obsessed by stories of people intimately attached to a particular place, being it a contested territory or a tropical jungle. His approach is by foot: He believes that to connect to a place, you have to measure it by steps. Jacob has a Master in Photojournalism and Documentary Photography from the London College of Communication and a PhD in Atmospheric Science. His work appears regularly in the major newspapers and magazines. He was recently awarded by the PHmuseum Grant and has been finalist of the World Report Award, Premio Voglino, Days Japan International Photojournalism Award and the Italy Photo Award. His work has been shown at several festivals like PhEST, Format, Warm, Grenze, Festival Fotografia Europeo e Angkor Wat Photo Festival.
