I’m a contemporary art photographer and film maker based in Copenhagen. Focusing on portraiture, I often work with the culture and identity of youth and gender. Through my work I always try to communicate a sense of melancholia and fragility, because i think the power lies within vulnerability and sincerity.
I always search for beauty in the mystical. From studying Religion Science I particularly find rituals’ liminal power, the transiting factor, where everything is at stake, immensely interesting: this is where borders are being crossed. I often use the same performative and aesthetic elements in my work and I always endeavour to create unique universes as seen in my first series Rite.
On the basis of my work as a filmmaker, I like to operate photographically with techniques similar to character building and mise-en-scene. Therefore, when I shoot it is important to me that the person I am photographing is willing to join in on the process of searching within oneself to create character and tell narratives.
