Alexandra Urisman Otto & Roger Turesson
Alexandra Urisman Otto was born in 1986. After completing a degree in Master of Laws at Lund University, she realized that practicing law would be too square, and that she needed a more creative career. Today she combines a life with young children and working as a journalist at Dagens Nyheter, where one of her tasks is to write about climate activist Greta Thunberg.
Roger Turesson (b. 1956) is an award-winning photojournalist at Dagens Nyheter and one of Sweden’s foremost photographers. He has covered numerous world events, such as the Gulf War, the conflicts in former Yugoslavia and Gaza, and the break-up of the Soviet Union. His awards include Swedish Picture of the Year in 1983, 1987, 1991 and 2019, among many others. When he met the girl in the yellow raincoat outside the Swedish Parliament he did not know that it was the start of one of his most important journeys – the journey with Greta.
