I am updating my BLOG. Please take a look :
Last week World Press Photo revealed the winners of the 2015 contest. On that occasion I was invited to speak about photography both at DR's Aftenshowet, with my danish colleague Mads Nissen and next morning on Go' Morgen Danmark, TV2.
Last week I was nominated for the Danish Picture of The Year (Årets Pressefoto). The Award Ceremony will be held at "Den Sorte Diamant" , the danish royal library on March 4th and it will be exciting to find out which photo the nomination is for. In my quiet mind I hope for my newest project "The Girls From Malawa"
For a long period of 2015 I have been focused on a new exhibition project, which up untill now has been a secret. Now EPEA03 has sent out a press release, and I'm very proud to say I'm part of this exciting exhibition project among some very talented European photographers. The exhibitions will be in 2016 and 2017 in Paris (FRANCE), Lucca (ITALY), Hamburg (GERMANY) and Oslo (NORWAY) and are sponsored by Friit Ord Foundation, Fondation Calouste Gulbenkian, Fondazione Banca del Monte di Lucca and Fondazione Banca del Monte di Lucca
When I was little I used to compete in disco freestyle tournaments. Filled with curiosity and nostalgia I have been back in the environment to get some snapshots!
This Wednsday I was on danish national televison talking about the good portrait, and how the eyes impact a good photograph.

I love shooting boxing. Here's Patrick Nielsen vs. Charles Adamu in Copenhagen this Saturday.
Last week I gave portfolio reviews for "KBH Film- og fotoskole Rampen" as part of the Copenhagen Photo Festival. The students were so talented and it was inspiring looking through their very diverse work.

This month I ended my temporary position as staff photographer at the danish newspaper Politiken. I have been shooting a campaign for Metroselskabet in Copenhagen. We had a dogma of shooting a very quick portrait of people near the Metro stations. The photos are out as posters now all over Copenhagen :-)
I recently shot portraits of the renowned film instructor Joshua Oppenheimer for Politiken.
