Assignment for The New York Times

In February I worked on assignment for the The New York Times which was published February 27th. Together with climate reporter Somini Sengupta I photographed for a story on Copenhagen’s ambition to be carbon neutral by 2025.

For the assignment I photographed Copenhagen’s mayor Frank Jensen and visited different locations with green initiatives here among a new incinerator with a ski slope on the top.

Priest for Jyllands-Posten

I was recently assigned to photograph priest Rikke Weissfeld for Jyllands-Posten. Rikke has a different background than the typical priest, as she has been both an actor, a politician and was a punker in her young years. She believes in having a modern approach to the church and is the priest of a newly built church in the area Ørestad in Copenhagen.
