About Emma Wiklund
There is something special with Emma, at least in my view. She is not only a former supermodel, actress and successful businesswoman but has a big heart. And this, I think, sets her apart from many others in her field and background.
Working as an Elle-model, Emma has walked all the prestigious catwalks, for all the big international fashion brands such as Chanel, Versace, Dior, Giorgio Armani, Dolce Gabbana, Jean-Paul Gaultier, Thierry Mugler and others.
She made a considerable success performing in George Michael’s music video” Too Funky” dressed up in a very futuristic and sexy outfit.
In the 90:s she was the poster-girl for Swedish dairy brand Arla.
Still very much in contact with film director Luc Besson, after working with him in the four’ Taxi’-movies between 1998-2007.
Emma changed her surname from Sjöberg to Wiklund when getting married in 2003.
About the photoshoot
My inspiration for this photoshoot was of a woman I saw in a magazine a long time ago, dressed up in an old army jacket, and I thought that could be visually fun to use as a prop in a photoshoot in the future. To make it a bit more interesting, I scouted for a suitable military jacket that wasn’t new and wasn’t seen everywhere. I finally find one from a vintage army surplus store in Australia that I purchased over the Internet.
Emma showed up very punctually on the day for our shoot, and it was, of course, exciting to photograph someone with such an experience in front of a camera.
