/about

I am a Danish photographer and lawyer based in Beijing. I was born in the small town of Haderslev and grew up on a farm in the Danish countryside. My interest in photography was sparked by my father’s travels as a young man in the United States and Greenland and the thousands of pictures he took along the way. In the past ten years, I have lived in 10 different cities on 3 continents—experiences that have provided rich storyboards for my photography.

While maintaining a career as a corporate lawyer, I have used photography as my creative outlet and take pictures whenever possible. When I lived in New York, I covered live concerts for Time Out and news events for Talking Points Memo. In the last five years, I have made Beijing my home, working for an international law firm. As a photographer, I have collaborated with historians and urban planners to document Beijing’s rapid changes. The city’s history and its contrasts between the old and new continue to serve as an inspiring platform for my photography. 

My work has been featured by several news outlets including the Guardian, Los Angeles Times, Huffington Post, and the New Yorker. I am also a contributor to Getty Images.

A stranger at first, I would eventually make each new city my home. I have found that being an insider and outsider at the same time has enabled me to notice stories and beauty in the otherwise mundane—like the the morning light on the back of a scruffy worker or the dreamy look on the face of a subway worker at rush hour. In that way, I seek to extract extraordinary stories from ordinary and familiar situations.
