Personal life

Van Hoytema was born in Horgen, Zürich, Switzerland, to Dutch parents. "I have no connection to Switzerland, I was born there, no more than that. My parents were there very briefly. They are both from the Netherlands. I'm Dutch, but it has been 20 years since I was in the Netherlands. What has been essential for my career has taken place in Sweden? I have a Swedish wife and a Swedish daughter and I feel adopted by Sweden. I feel most connected to Sweden."
