Therese Öhrvall and Joel Jägerroos are a Swedish-Finnish photography team. They live and work in New York City.
Carefully constructed, Therese + Joel's photography is inspired by early European Cinema. Deploying characters in preconceived, seemingly spontaneous contexts, it references the aesthetics of directors such as Carl Theodor Dreyer and Ingmar Bergman. Therese + Joel's exploration of the supposedly conflicting themes of horror and beauty sees their photography exist as both art and fashion.
Therese + Joel's work has been exhibited internationally, including The Georgia O'Keeffe Museum, Santa Fe, New Mexico, The Hermitage, St. Petersburg, Russia, Krasnoyarsk State Museum in Siberia, Milk Gallery & F.L.O.A.T. Gallery in New York City, Gallery S. Bensimon in Paris, France and Ricoh Ring Cube Gallery in Tokyo, Japan.
Their clients include TIME Magazine, Wired, REVS, Galore Mag, The Wall Street Journal, S Magazine, Milk Made, IVANAHelsinki, Bullett Magazine and New York Post, amongst others.
Therese + Joel were selected as one of the 30 emerging photographers to watch in 2011 by Photo District News.
