aorta is the name of a project. behind it stand the photographers kristian kraen and marco grizelj. since 1998 the two swedes have been working as a creative team in the most diverse photographic areas. the range of aorta includes people, fashion and still life photography for advertising, editorial and artistic purposes. kraen and grizelj are characterised by a playful use of film elements and a mode of expression that includes pathos and mysticism, as well as a fair allowance of profound humour. this gives their photographic scenarios an unmistakable emotional concentration. swedish railways, nobel, procter & gamble and international agencies like mc saatchi, saatchi & saatchi, propaganda and bbdo.anr figure on aorta's customer list.
