B. 1988, Denmark

I am a visual artist and photographer based in Copenhagen. Since graduating from The Glasgow School of Art in 2016 I have been working primarily with the concepts of freedom and identity. Both on an abstract plan, in relation to themes such as sexuality and religion but also in a more concrete and physical manner, through looking at bodies, borders and carnality.

In my personal work I think of the camera as a tool in a post-photographic contemporary context where cameras and images are everywhere and accessible to everyone. In the digital age the camera can no longer be accepted as an objective interpreter of truth. This creates an interesting field of tension between fiction and reality, which to me is the most appealing and relevant aspect of photography. As an artist working with photography, I get to reflect an edited version of reality back to the viewer by obstructing the myth of the camera as a mediator between reality and image.
