Exhibiting at LUMIX festival for Young Photojournalism

This month I was proud to be exhibiting at the Lumix festival for Young Photojournalism in Hannover, Germany. It was a great big exhibition with many crazy talented young photographers.

All the exhibited stories were also featured in this beautiful book:

Metro Magazine

I have made the photos for the newest Metro Magazine this July. The twins Filippa and Sofie decorate the front page!

Teitur in Iceland

Last week I shot some portraits of the Faroese singer songwriter Teitur for Politiken. Here is a couple of shots of Teitur swimming in his favourite icelandic outdoor pool.

Jonas - following the dream

Jonas Mågaard, 21, is one of Denmark's new hopes in the MMA (Mixed Martial Arts). Journalist Niels Rytter and I followed him up till, during and after his struggles at the Danish Championship of MMA.

Visiting a small town i Missouri

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.

MIAMI

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:

WORLD PRESS PHOTO

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.

Here are some photos from the days:

ÅRETS PRESSEFOTO

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.

WINNER OF THE SCANPIX PRICE

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.
