Country: Denmark 🇩🇰

I am an autodidact professional freelance photographer based in Copenhagen, Denmark. From the very beginning of my career, I have been focusing on social and cultural stories, documenting on many different issues, including Iraqi refugees in Syria, the Coptic garbage city in Egypt, the masked women of southern Iran, the aftermath of the earthquake in Haiti, refugees in Tunisia fleeing Libya and many other. I have been working with organisations as CARE, Doctors Without Borders, Danish Refugee Council etc.

In 2010/2011 I began working on what has become my life’s work – the Dead and Alive Project, documenting death rituals and how we relate to death around the world. Until now, I have been photographing death rituals and stories related to death in Greenland, Haiti, Guatemala, Philippines, Nepal, India, Ghana, Madagascar, Denmark, Indonesia, Israel and Mexico.

Over the years, I have received several national and international prizes for my work.
