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 :-)
A couple of weeks ago I visited the small town Trenton in Missouri, USA for the Missouri Photo Workshop. I photographed Janet and Vance, the owners of the local gun shop in town. Pictures will be online soon.
Min bedste veninde og kollega, fotojournalist Cathrine Ertmann og jeg, lavede i marts måned et debatindlæg til Fagbladet Journalisten om de ringe betingelser for fotojournalister i Danmark. Vi fik taget dette billede af dygtige Bo Amstrup. Artiklen kan læses her:
I went to Miami Beach to do my final project at the Danish School of Media and Journalism. Miami has a special place in my heart, since I lived there with my family in 1998. When I went to the Eddie Adams Workshop in New York last fall, I was so lucky to meet the greatest girl, who happens to be living in Miami: Mary Beth. I stayed at her house on my stay in the city and she introduced me to a lot of great people. One in particular was Raven - one of Miami's most special celebrities. Raven has been running 8 miles on Miami Beach every single day for 38 years. Read more about him on:
In April I went to Amsterdam for a 3 day long conference: The World Press Photo Award Days. I was to receive my price and give a lecture about my work. I had a great time with the other danes in the group and loved the city of Amsterdam.
Fredag den 1. marts blev der uddelt priser i Årets Pressefoto. Jeg vidste, at jeg var nomineret til en pris, men ikke at jeg skulle vinde "Årets Pressefoto". Udover "Årets Pressefoto" vandt jeg også 1. pladsen i Årets Reportage.
Det var den vildeste dag med fest og glade mennesker, og jeg var så glad. Dagene efter blev brugt på at tale med en masse journalister, mens jeg samtidig skulle tilbage på 8. semester på Journalisthøjskolen.
On June 27th me and my class of fellow photojournalists graduated from The Danish School of Media and Journalism. I was very honored to receive the Scanpix Price for best final project. Scanpix is where I did my 18 months long internship so it meant a lot to me.
