Thematically concerned with ideas of expressing and defining masculinity, gender, and identity, photographer and filmmaker Michael Søndergaard (Danish, b. 1988) 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.
