This final week of school i’m having a workshop with Marc Prust on how to brand yourself and attract costumers! We are playing ‘The Business Game’, gaining credits by writing proposals, doing assingments and of course, we are paying taxes as well!
FINALLY! Two months of hard work has come to an end! My Final Project is done and handed in. Horray.
UK Roadworks Magazine publishes ‘Deficit’.
Danish Kenneth Krabat made a litlle tribute of poems to the work ‘About Dying’
Finally all the shooting I did in NYC and around has become something. I call it ‘un fit’
Have a look right here
This time I’ve made a collage, so you can decide what size you want to see the pictures and the layout totally depends on what device you are using. Have fun.
Finishing up our visual projects with feedback fra Søren Pagter & Kent Klich. Everybody did such beautiful and interesting work <3 I’ll let you see what I did later. Next stop: final project!
One of my pictures from ‘About Dying’ is on display in the Danish Picture of the Year!
Go see the brilliant stuff my colleagues has done this year when the exhibition will travel around Denmark.
I post this picture because it contains a story about a life ending to soon, about coincidence about never knowing where things will end (up). A year ago, Lise Bank Hournung and I worked on the project ‘About Dying’. We talked to different cases who were all seriously ill, we talked about life and what becomes important in life, when you know your path is short.
One of the people we meet was Mette Kemp. Small areas in her heart and lounges had developed cancer. The was so full of life when we meet her, she was ready to fight and not at all ready to say goodbye to her family. We believed her, anybody would looking in to her eyes. She was scared yes, but she was so bright and strong. She died in december 2012.
In the project the photos from the morgue (see ‘About Dying’ in this feed) were published in Dagbladet Information in August 2012. Only the pictures from the morgue, never the story about Mette Kemp.
Some days ago Sigrid from Information called me again asking about a picture. The one I did of Mette Kemp in her garden. Every week Dagbladet Information brings an extended obituary about a person. In contrats to the other dailys in Denmark, that make long obituaries about famous people, Information writes about all regular non-famous you and me-people. I love this idea! And I was happy to be able to contribute.
I remembered sitter in her little house with Lise, and the two of us talking about her sickness and how we both believed she would live for a long time. And how strange it felt, that the picture I took that day, ended up in being a picture for an obituary. In the same paper that brought the other part of the project, without any relation at all.
The rest of my New York film only needs scanning now!
Later this month I’ll travel to Moskva to give a talk and a workshop about my portraits. I was invited on by the Danish Embassy and the school of photograpy, Photo Team on occasion of a cooperation to promoting cultural understanding in Denmark and Greenland. Before I go they asked my to talk at a gathering using Skype. Brand new digital world! :)
Back to school, Denmark!
I’ve just started my final semester at The Danish school of Media and Journalism. We’ve already had great guest teachers, Kent Klich and Anders Petersen gave us one week of inspiration each and its has been truly amazing.
