Mikael Jansson (born July 15, 1958) is a Swedish-born fashion photographer and director. Jansson regularly contributes to publications such as American and French Vogue and Interview Magazine as well as photographing campaigns for luxury brands. In the 1970s and early 80s, Jansson photographed popular bands such as Blondie, Roxy Music, Iggy, Bowie and the Clash, as well as musicians Chet Baker and Miles Davis. He then took on an assistant role with Swedish photographer Carl-Johan Rönn; five years later he moved to New York to assist Richard Avedon on his portfolio In the American West.
Jansson garnered international attention in 1998 when he published a nude portfolio in Dutch, then considered by industry insiders the leading avant-garde magazine. The feature spanned eighty-two pages and included fashion credits to nude images in a nod to Andy Warhol.
Jansson currently divides his time between London and New York.
