Well arrived under Cairo clouds. Call +20 01004128744 for coffee dates, and follow here for updates.
A couple of weeks ago I had a workshop with Anders Petersen. Above is a portrait I shot during the workshop and below a small collection of quotes that I’m sure every student of his will recognize. 
As the first sentence “Christer Strömholm. Have you met his pictures?”
Reviewing a students work “It is a pity its color.. (long pause) What about making it black and white?” 
Talking about his own generation of photographers “It is not easy to be 61 and to be Nan Goldin.” 
Commenting on J.H. Engström “One of the worst assistants I ever had. Absolutely. It was a catastrophe. He was very bad in printing.”

Last month I visited the studio of Kirstie van Noort to do a feature for I Wait Here Magazine. I love Kirstie’s choice of colors, and she’s a skilled photographer as well. Take a look at her work here and keep an eye for the feature at I Wait Here.

Og de nominerede er..
The interactive feature I did with journalist Frauke Giebner about the daily life in a Danish brothel was one of the most read stories on politiken.dk in 2013. Our editor told us the page had more than 350.000 hits the first week online. 
I did the collage above for a follow up chapter featured in the Sunday section of Politiken the 22nd of December 2013.

I talk about my photograph of these two Syrian smiles and how children never cease to amaze me in Politiken’s culture section this Friday. Read the interview below (in Danish)

»Libanon er det land, der har taget flest flygtninge fra Syrien. Omkring 1 million mennesker har siden borgerkrigens begyndelse krydset grænsen. Jeg boede i Libanon i foråret og tog i november tilbage for at fotografere flygtningesituationen. Billedet her er fra en lille lejr i Bekaa-dalen.
Egentlig var jeg lidt irriteret på de her drenge. Jeg forsøgte at fotografere forholdene i lejren, men de blev ved med at stille sig op foran kameraet og vinke.Til sidst gik jeg med til at tage et billede af dem. De trak mig hen til en væg med tegninger. Jeg kunne ikke lade være med at smile, som de stillede sig an foran deres kunstværk.
For børn er fantastiske. De kan, bedre end nogen voksen, se mere end det, der er foran dem. De tager ikke synderlig notits af, at de bor midt i en losseplads i telte af kartoffelsække. For dem bliver hvide sten til kridt, og med kridt kan man lege hinkesten og tegne små hjerter til den, man godt kan lide.
I tre år har mine kollegaer og jeg vist jer den ulykke, en borgerkrig kan skabe. Det er vores arbejde.Her får I i stedet to smil. Fotografisk er billedet måske ikke noget særligt, men jeg kan godt lide det. Det minder mig om, at der på kanten af borgerkrigen stadig er mennesker, der forelsker sig, vasker tøj og tegner små hjerter på væggen«.
