Im in the conceptual stage of a new series which I have been wanting to make for some time. It will be set in an post-apocalyptic future where the the viewer will feel like the last person left on earth. If it will ever see the light of day I can’t answer you.
Tell us a little bit about yourself: where is home, and how long have you been a photographer?
Home is Denmark and I started photography in early 2008 where I uploaded my first series to the Behance Network – and from there my popularity skyrocketed to where I am now.
How has your work evolved over the years from when you where beginning?
I started shooting desolate “dirty” places – with grafitti and broken glass. I have however grown in love with modern architecture and desolate minimal landscapes which I try to focus on at this time.
Tim Navis. The guy blew my mind the first time I saw his work and still amazes me. We are so different in style yet we share the same view on certain things in photography – and I had the privilege of making a documentary along with Tim last year. In October 2011 the two of us traveled all around Iceland with film collective Scenic and composer Deru – making the project of our dreams. The documentary will be shown to the world some time during the next few months – you can read about our project at http://www.kickstarter.com/projects/scenic/outliers-vol-i-iceland and http://www.outliersiceland.com/.
What type of camera do you shoot with?
Canon 7D + 50D (backup)
Which one item of equipment would you say is the most important to you?
My wideangle lenses for sure.
Do you have a favorite walk around lens…If so what Is It?
My Tokina 11-16 mm – so sharp and crispy.
Something you’ve always wanted to do, but have yet to.
A documentary on my story in photography.
Something that annoys or frustrates you about people.
I tend to avoid people in my work with photography.
Your idea about social networks.
It is King. Without social networking I would be navel lint. I use a lot of time connecting via social networks and I think it is so important today to connect if you want your work out there – to be seen.
If you had absolute power for one day, what would you do?
What’s overrated today?
