Born in the tiny island of Langeland and raised between Denmark and Spain, I am a photographer and multidisciplinary artist based in Barcelona. My artistic practice delves between photography, sculpture and painting, and I inquirie into the very materials I work with. Light, color, texture and reflections embody my persistent quest to find beauty in friction, sometimes opposites and even in uncertainty.
I have balanced between photography, illustration, film and literature since 2001. Curiosity and constant experimentation keeps me moving forward.
My photographic work has been exhibited at the New York Photography Festival, Voies Off Rencontres d’Arles and Copenhagen Photo Festival, among others. Also, I was the recipient of the Art for Change Award19 (La Caixa Foundation). This year, I am among the winners of the INICO Photo Award and will be exhibiting at the Helsinki International Photography Festival this summer 2021, as my project Uncertainty & Possibility will be part of the Nordic Village Show. My work has also been awarded in the 16th edition of the Julia Margaret Cameron Award and will be exhibited in the Biennial of Fine Art & Documentary Photography, that will be held in September, in Barcelona.
In the field of documentary film, I am co-screenwriter and co-director of Cromosoma Cinco, a strong and moving film based on my personal diaries, which describes the experience of being a parent of a child with a disability. The film was launched at the Malaga Film Festival and has since been represented at other international festivals and won the BOSI Film Festival Film Award, among others. The film shows how complicated and uncertain life is at times, but also the many small joys we are given that make us happy. The film can be viewed at: http://www.rtve.es/cromosomacinco/ (in Spanish) and https://vimeo.com/49453706 (English subtitled, password: andrea).
I have also worked intensively with Danish literature and have translated Jacob Ejersbo's superb African trilogy - "Exile", "Revolution" and "Liberty" - as well as Søren Sveistrup's acclaimed "The Chestnut Man" from Danish to Spanish, among other titles. It is a great honor for me to have contributed to Spanish-speaking readers having access to these Danish masterpieces.
