I am a Danish documentary photographer based in Copenhagen, Denmark.

After graduating with a bachelor in geography, I started studying photojournalism at the Danish School of Media and Journalism (DMJX). As part of my education I worked at the Danish daily, Dagbladet Politiken for 18 months and I am currently studying at The Royal Academy of Art in The Hague. My work deals with social topics like human rights and living conditions. Primarily I am concerned with neglected stories about how society treats the less fortunate, which I mainly explores through intimate portraiture. 

Besides working with personal projects, I am available for commissioned portraits and documentary work in Denmark and internationally.
