3. Therese & Joel

Therese Öhrvall and Joel Jägerroos are a Swedish-Finnish photography team.
They live and work in New York City.

The photographs of Therese + Joel are carefully constructed, inspired by early European Cinema, deploying characters in preconceived yet seemingly spontaneous poses and contexts, referencing to the aesthetics of directors such as Carl Theodor Dreyer and Ingmar Bergman. The play of natural and artificial light deployed by Therese + Joel highlights the control of their subjects, transcending into indefinite narratives.
Therese + Joel’s work balances deliberately between fine art and fashion, as well as the concepts of horror and beauty.
The work of Therese + Joel has been exhibited internationally, including The Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, Santa Fe, New Mexico, The Hermitage, St. Petersburg, Russia, Krasnoyarsk State Museum in Siberia, International Studio & Curatorial Program and FLOAT Gallery in New York City.
Therese + Joel were selected as one of the 30 emerging photographers to watch in 2011 by Photo District News.
