I am a danish documentary photographer. I am interested in people and their daily life on various places in the world. How does a nomadic tribe go about adjusting to globalwarming, or how does a city once part of Soviet Union cope with the surrounding uranium pollution and unstable economy. These types of questions are my photos about. I give voices to these people and I sell my stories and art to be able to visit more and more places and tell more and more stories. I am a VII Photo masterclass student at the moment working on a project about Vestjylland in Denmark and Kyrgyzstan in Central Asia.
