ABOUT

ARTIST STATEMENT

I am a photographer and visual artist born (1988) and based in Copenhagen. My main interest is portrait photography. I have an interest in presence and the lack thereof, and I seek to express existential conditions of human life through photography. I work with various psychological spheres within our existence and when I photograph, I am particularly aware of the dimensions: presence, aesthetics, simplicity and light. My work evolves through exploring the possibilities and boundaries of photography and image making. It has become more staged and I am experimenting with transformations between the figurative and the abstract. My images tell stories about people and their position between reality as you see it and an imaginary world. I have an intuitive and experimental approach to photography, and I have become more and more aware of the creative process in which my images evolve.
