The landscape is apparent in my work, sometimes natural sometimes manipulated with evident traces of people. I rarely plan pictures, but will let my visual sense decide where there is an image.
I prefer to work with medium format analogue film cameras. The process is slow and focused, and I find a stillness and concentration in the moment. I also like polaroid, and will sometimes work with digital pocket camera if I find that is the best in the situation.
The slow process of sewing has brought something new, and I've made my first handmade artist book this year for 'sister chromatids', and recently started to embroider on my images.
'Hjemstavn' [Revisited] is an exploration of the place I was born. It is a joint project with 'Grupperingen Hjemstavn' in which we revisit our respective places of birth individually and together
I’m co-founder of MAX A5, an annual one-day art exhibition that ran for six years from 2011-2016.
Blog named after my favourite film: Portra 400 NC; which sadly no longer is produced. Occasional work in progress and other stuff
I have two intertwining careers where I express my skills in different ways, as a photographer and as a science publisher respectively. Throughout my life one has typically had more focus over the other in periods, but both are very present and essential for my expression, and I always utilise all skills in whatever I’m doing.
My works are in the collection of CBS library, and I have exhibited across Denmark.
