Patrik Monka’s (@riomonka) photography is an ode to the power of gymnasts and ballerinas. “I really like the strong poses and the energy they have,” says the photographer and video editor, who is originally from Sweden and based in Barcelona. Patrik carefully chooses the landscapes where he shoots — he wants to ensure these dynamic, flexible models are inspired by their surroundings, too. “The important thing for me is to be positive and inspire others to be positive,” says Patrik. “That’s my life goal.”
