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 living in Syria, the Coptic garbage city in Egypt, the masked women of southern Iran, the Holi festival in India, the aftermath of the earthquake in Haiti, refugees in Tunisia fleeing Libya and many more. I have been working with organisations like CARE (Niger, Nepal), Doctors Without Borders (Haiti) and lately with Danish Refugee Council (Iraq, Kenya, Ethiopia and Djibouti).
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, the Philippines, Nepal, India, Ghana, Madagascar and Denmark.
