Chasing the white rabbit
Watch it on DR1 on May 31 at 20 pm
The documentary Chasing the white rabbit expresses my fascination of the Greenlandic nature and my curiosity to learn about the old cultures and traditions. In this one-hour documentary I am traveling to the northern most settlement on earth - Siorapaluk to get the last photos for my book Silence of the north, which became quite a challenge to me. Read more about Chasing the white rabbit.
Silence of the North
moments from the nordic nature

My new book expresses my fascination of the natural world and it brings together my favourite photographs from my many trips and expeditions to the nordic countries. Besides the many photos, I also share some of my thoughts, and I do my very best to describe the beauty and silence I find in nature. Read more and order your copy of Silence of the North.

· Swan Dance ·

“When I opened my eyes that morning and looked out of the window, I was greeted by an amazing sight – the country was covered by a thick layer of fresh snow, and the vegetation was thick with ice crystals. I knew where the Whooper Swans spent their days, and I prayed that they would not fail me today, of all days. I put my 600mm lens on the camera and set the exposure manually to make sure that both the white and dark shades would be perfect. I spent a long time getting close to the swans. A few steps, kneel down, wait and then a few more steps. It was quiet this morning, and to get the chance to sit down and just observe the dazzling swans in this white scenery was simply an indescribable experience. My eye was caught by a minor drama among a group of swans – it reminded me of a short dance between two of the birds, with the other swans forming an attentive audience. Swan Dance is one of my favourite pictures, and when I look at the poster on my wall at home, my thoughts drift back to an unforgettable Danish winter morning.”
