I was born in Copenhagen in 1977 and used to work as a graphic designer in advertising. In 2007 I bought my first DSLR camera and started shooting and uploading my first series to the Behance platform which started a wildfire. I now work in the daytime as a fingerprints expert in the Crime Scene Unit of The Danish National Police and when I am not looking at fingerprints I work as a freelance architectural and landscape photographer focusing mainly on abandoned structures and desolate landscapes. Using a minimal and desaturated color scheme in combination with the absence of people, I create an eerie, epic and often lonely mood that evokes a mix of David Lynch and Stanley Kubrick.
