Jonas Åkerlund to d&d


Director and photographer Jonas Åkerlund (Gessle, Roxette, Metallica, Madonna, Prodigy, etc.) is now represented in Scandinavia by d&d management , the same firm that manages Roxette.

d&d partner Marie Dimberg and Jonas Åkerlund have crossed paths earlier, when Jonas made a documentary about Marie Fredriksson, which led to videos for Per Gessle and subsequently Roxette. Now they’re focusing on a deeper collaboration.

From d&d management:

We are proud and happy to welcome Jonas Åkerlund to d&d for management representation in Scandinavia.
