We are Kristian Krän and Marco Grizelj. AORTA was founded in 1996 and is our cooperative trademark as a photographic duo.

We are passionate about exploring diverse aesthetical concepts.
 Our favourite subjects are people and staged photography since it allows us to sculpt reality and create situations that previously only existed in our minds and notebooks. We find pleasure in working with our hands and often do our own setdesign as well as postproduction. Our 200 sqm studio is located in Majorna in the city of Göteborg in Sweden but our assignments have taken us across the world.

Besides photography we share a passion for deep electronic music and have been DJing and arranging parties and festivals with the Locus Soundsystem since 2001. 

Our editorial assignments include Kids Wear, GQ, Wired, TIME, Die Zeit, Café, Bon, Elle, Vision.
