Born in 1979 in Denmark.
I Graduated from the Danish School of Journalism and proceeded to work as staff photographer at the Danish national newspaper ‘Politiken’. In the past few years, I’ve had many opportunities to work abroad in places such as: Niger – food crisis, Philippines – overpopulation and I also took a personal photography voyage into the Amazon rainforest.

In 2006 I travelled to Shanghai and where I was based for two years. While freelancing there I have worked for Newsweek, TIME, Der Spiegel, Stern, Sunday Times and other publications.

Since 2009 I’ve been working as staff photographer for the Danish national newspaper Berlingske Tidende.

Reportage from MOLDOVA (Daily Life)

Some time ago I visited Moldova and the capital Chisinau where riots are taking place these days….


Covered in green hilly wine fields, Moldova used to be amongst the richest countries in the former Soviet Union. Today, 18 years after Moldova gained it’s independence, the country has become one of the poorest in Europe.

Moldova’s problems are many and according to The World Bank a forth of the working population are forced abroad in order to feed their family – many of these illegally. Also, in search for a job, many Moldavian girls are tricked into prostitution, and throughout the tiny country human trafficking is a mayor threat.

Moldova is about the same size as Belgium, but with a population counting only 4.4 million people. It lays squeezed in between Romania and Ukraine. However, regardless of its size a civil war managed to break in the east, as the territory claimed independence through their own republic: The Trans-Dniestrian Moldavian Soviet Socialist Republic. The Soviet-inspired republic is not acknowledged by international law, but does however already have its own army, currency, citizenship and president.
