Per-Anders PetterssonPer-Anders Pettersson was born in 1967 in southern Sweden. During his obligatory military service he was able to work as an editorial photographer for the army paper. When he was 20, a Swedish newspaper offered him a job as an editorial photographer in New York. The city became the starting point for many commissioned reportages. This brought him to South Africa in 1994 to document the first free elections in the former Apartheid state. Pettersson lives and works in Cape Town.
