One city - One year - 12 books. Året (The Year) is a project by Blankt Papir Press who each month invite a small group of photographers to portrait Copenhagen. The publications are published ongoing each month. The September issue was released in October, an issue I shot together with Stinus Duch, Sarah Michelle Riisager and Jonas Fogh.
We finally got the last funding for publishing a photo newspaper with the material we did from Nordvest (North West) in Copenhagen as a part of the NV Live Lab. Stay tuned this fall as 10.000 copies will be all over Nordvest. We are happy for the cooperation with Spine Studio who will be in charge of the design.
The NV project was a 10 day photographic lab in 2017, where a group of 5 photographers shot pictures, printed and exhibited everyday in an abandon kiosk. Read a little bit more here.
I am making a photo book. Happy to share the first look at the book dummy for SALT.
Can't wait to continue the work on this book and to one day present a final copy.
I am really happy to have been chosen from 200 applicants as a participant of the ISSP 2018 workshop in Latvia. There will be photographers and curators from over 30 countries. Can't wait to work together with Jan Rosseel and Yumi Goto and the other talented participants.
ISSP is a platform for contemporary photography, based in Latvia and acting internationally. ISSP offers highest-quality education and networking programmes for photographers, organises exhibition and events, and creates new ways to promote the cross-border exchange of ideas in the art of photography.

Working on my ongoing material from Israel and Palestine. Can't wait to get back again in April. This is my software running to slow, when flickering through the archive.
British Journal of Photography features an interview on their website with me on photography and how to approach the world outside your own window. Read the interview here (click).
Palsnov is an avid traveller yet he is just as enthusiastic about photographing the scenes and subjects found on his own doorstep in Copenhagen, as those he finds when exploring a foreign country. “Photographing in unfamiliar destinations and in Copenhagen doesn’t differ that much for me,” he says. “The real life outside your own window is as beautiful and absurd as any foreign place. You just need to open your eyes and mind and sense it."
It is perhaps Palsnov’s trip to Sweden this summer, however, that best captures his approach to photography. It is not solely about where or what you photograph but also the experience of capturing an image. “The trip to Sweden was not about photography but about being a human and wanting to sense things and explore. This should always be how photography is approached, then the picture will always come. You need to experience in order to have something to photograph: the experience always precedes the photograph.”
MINT is a photo collective founded in 2013 and today it consists of 8 photographers from Denmark and Germany. Last weekend 7 of the members met in Frankfurt for the annual meeting to discuss, inspire, plan and hug. Here are some impressions from a great weekend! Very pleased to be a part of this bunch of talented people. Photos by MINT members.
It was such an incredible honor to do the NV Live Lab together with Sarah Michelle Riisager, Stinus Duch, Jonas Fogh and Mads Holm! Together we portrayed the area of North West in Copenhagen in 10 days - everyday with a new exhibition in an old kiosk that was open for public. On the 10th day we closed the thing down with a big reception. A selection of the pictures were exhibited on the street for another 14 days. Thank you so much to everybody who stopped by and helped us. Here's a few impressions from the final day.
