Swedish term or phrase: värja sig
An article describing the increasing number of good and succesful Swedish photographers in recent decades, continuing (last sentence most important):

Identifikation, subjektivitet – viljan att komma förbi motiven i sig, det som synes vara, är karakteristika för flera av de här nämnda och publicerade fotograferna. Denna starka tendens i svensk samtidsfotografi har flera yngre utövare, för att nämna några ytterligare, Joakim Eneroth med boken Utan slut/Without end (2003), Anna Clarén med Holding (2006) och Rikard Laving med Caravan (2007).
XXX på (a big and famous picture/photography agency) har värjt sig med glimten i ögat, ”no, no more Swedish photographers”.
