After apprenticing with Photographers in London’s fashion and advertising industry, Ivar spent several years working on his own documentary art projects. His first series, The Gods, was shot on the fringes of the urban sprawl of the decaying cities of the American Deep South. The Gods has been exhibited in London, New York, Los Angeles and Tokyo. Following this Ivar moved to Kingston, Jamaica, and in 2017 the artist produced his second photographic series, Young Love, a collection of photographs made over two years spent living within the Dancehall music community. This was exhibited in 2017 at a solo show at Somerset House, London.
His portraits of Brooklyn based artist Deadboy were shown in ‘Coming Of Age’ curated by Virgil Abloh a travelling exhibition that visited LA, Berlin, Milan and Tokyo.
Ivar has shot commercial projects for Louis Vuitton, Hugo Boss and Supreme.
