Glennshood – the moderately clever combination of lens hood and Glenn’s hood (obviously Gothenburg) – is run as a personal project by photographers and chemical engineers Emil Johansson and Magnus Walander. Founded in September 2016, it was born out of the desire to explore and share the hidden beauty of the city of Gothenburg, Sweden.

Emil Johansson is a chemical engineer working with additive manufacturing. He is also a web creative and a photographer with a particular fascination for data visualization and the wonderful world created by J.R.R. Tolkien. You can find his work at
