Petra Stenvall (B. Sweden 1986) 

Graduated from my Ba (Hons) degree, London College of Communication 2012 and have since worked within the photography industry. 2013 I won with my degree project a exhibition place at FreshFaced+WildEyed at The Photographers Gallery, London and a place at their one year mentoring programe. 

2014 I founded TjejLand. Tjejland is a creative project space, inspired by the idea behind a syjunta (Swedish word for sewing circle). Such circles were common for women to meet and socialize during the early and mid 1900s. TjejLand's vision is to act like a social meeting place and create a curative, creative platform showcasing female artist around the world. May 2015 I publiced and edited its first publication which featured eight European female photographers.
