Philip Karlberg, born 1973, is one of the country’s most talented and prominent still life and interior photographers. Over the years, he has gained extensive business experience, and he shares his time equally between editorial and commercial assignments.

His photos are characterized by a pristine, near-perfect quality that nevertheless retains a suggestive secrecy. Philip Karlberg’s visual ingenuity transforms a still life into a mystery, riddled with visual clues. His pictures often display a sheen of luxury combined with strong emotions, tense moods, and a visceral feeling of presence. The images entice the viewer to pause and search for the story hidden within.

Philip Karlberg is a productive photographer whose assignments take him all over the world. Among the commercial clients are Swarovski, Marc O’Polo, Kasthall and NK, who have worked with Philip for nearly ?ten years. Among the editorial clients are Plaza, Wallpaper, Tush, Dansk, and Residence.
A couple of months ago I came up with an idea I have had in mind for years. I just did not know what I could use it for. But then I did a test with sunglasses, and it really turned out great. So I sent an image with the test to Plaza Magazine, and a week later I started shooting. It was a real challenge to ‘sculpt’ the faces of some classic wearers of sunglasses. It took me 6 days to shoot the 6 faces, and around 1200 sticks were used.
