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 finds in nature. You can now preorder a signed version of Silence of the North and sign up for my newsletter to get a notification when the book is published.

Silence of the North
Unique moments from the nordic nature

Min bog Nordisk Stilhed er en hyldest til vores nordiske natur, som har så meget brug for at blive værdsat og respekteret. Bogen samler nogle af mine ynglingsfotografier, og i korte tekster fortæller jeg om nogle af mine uforglemmelige oplevelser i naturen og forsøger at sætte ord på de tanker og følelser, jeg oplever derude på mine fotoekspeditioner, på slæderejserne med Siriuspatruljen og herhjemme i den danske natur. Teksterne i bogen er på dansk og engelsk. Du kan nu forudbestille en signeret udgave af Nordisk Stilhed, og hvis du vil have direkte besked, når bogen udkommer, kan du tilmelde dig mit nyhedsbrev.

· 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.”
