Fredric Nord is a writer and photographer living in Karlstad, Sweden. He enjoys basic forms of magic – like watching dogs run as fast as they can; the potential of charcoal on paper; or, the alchemy of a single violin emanating out of silence. His work has appeared in Phases Magazine, Phosmag, Mutantspace, Burning House Press and in print via Antler Press. Fredric is currently writing at length about the transition of photography from a visual expression to a category of linguistics, and how – in contrast – the changed intent of visual experience as presence, as a kind of ’silence’ or ’poetry’, may be utilised as an act of love. Fredric regularly contributes to burninghousepress.com.
