Final project at DMJX: done

I finished my studies at DMJX last week. My final project was a portrait of the suburbs west of Copenhagen called Vestegnen. The housing in the area was rapidly build in the latter part of the 20th century using newly accessible industrial building techniques and grand ideas about equality, rationalisation and “the modern welfare city”. The world has changed since the architects and city planners drew out the expansion of Copenhagen and today Vestegnen is not like they had anticipated, but still the inhabitants enjoy life there. The story is online here (text in Danish).

UPDATE, January 28th: The Project was awarded with the Scanpix Prize at the graduation ceremony from DMJX.



Trekking Kyrgyzstan scanned and online

This summer I did a seven day trek in the “heavenly mountains” of Tian Shan in Kyrgyzstan with my trusted Mamiya 7 strapped to my chest. Now I have finally scanned and edited the last negatives and published them as a story here. During the hike I collected and pressed flowers from the surprisingly lush mountain sides and included them in the story.
