Jens Assur, 1970, is a Swedish photographer and film maker. From 1990 until 1997 he worked as a photojournalist at Expressen, then the leading newspaper in Scandinavia, covering stories in nearly 100 countries. From 1997 until 2001 he worked on the project Under the Shifting Skies which resulted in a book comprised of two volumes. In the first volume he traveled through Sweden taking pictures of people slipping through the cracks, Sami, refugees, Hells Angels, neo-nazis and porn stars. As he found out that every situation in Sweden is tied to events in other countries he decided to make a second volume. In 2010 he released the book Hunger which consists of five seperate books dealing with how we consume and how we treat our world. The following images come from the books If you love global warming – honk, Hunger and Under the Shifting Skies Vol I.
