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.
