photographer pia ulin

Photography can still seem a male-dominated domain. And while it's possible to rattle off a long list of accomplished female photographers, it's always satisfying to add another woman to the list who's carving out a formidable reputation for herself. Pia Ulin is a Swedish photographer who studied and spends much of her time in New York. She travels constantly for work, thanks to her client base which includes HM HOME, Ikea and Anthropologie, as well as magazines such as Elle Decoration, Martha Stewart and Condé Nast Traveller. Pia has also published two books - Nesting is the most recent - and completed one documentary film.
