Recognized for his fine art portrait photography, artist Michael Søndergaard (Danish, b. 1988) excels at capturing the power of vulnerability and the process of continually discovering and accepting oneself. To reveal these motifs, Søndergaard employs performative photography.

Thematically concerned with ideas of expressing and defining identity and gender, Søndergaard produces ominously dark and eloquently beautiful portraits of fragile yet powerful subjects. His work is informed by a personal and academic interest in religious studies, reflecting this through symbolism found in elements such as feathers, special fabric or face marks.


Søndergaard is represented exclusively by The Little Black Gallery London. Press, print, editorial & work inquiries please contact: Ghislain Pascal
