I am a Danish visual artist based in Oslo, Norway. I graduated as a photojournalist from the Danish School of Media and Journalism in 2013. Since then I have worked with photography as an artist, a freelance photographer, a teacher and a photo editor. I have held various positions at Danish Folk Highschools teaching art- and documentary photography. From September 2018 to November 2019 I work as photo editor-in-chief at Morgenbladet, Oslo.
