Entry Description

Every year people gather close to the city of Roskilde, for Roskilde Festival, the largest culture and music festival in Northern Europe. But even before the official opening of the festival grounds, there is a buildup for a week in the camping grounds. Two young girls who don't give a fuck. They're 17 years old and not necessarily too impressed by the whole Roskilde experience. It's dirty, and as festival rookies they've accidentally set up camp too close to the fence, where to many men go and piss, and drunk people go to throw up. On the other hand, this provides them with a laid back kind of fun: in the girls' camp, they've ended up using it as entertainment, grading the artistic impression of each poor fellow who vomits by the fence. Puking through your nose is a sure fire way to get a full 10.

About Photographer

A great deal of my photography starts from a desire to describe the individual person in settings where he or she is alone and private. The point of departure is not a pose but to take pictures of peoples lives with all the little things we each do. A kind of active portrait photography. It is important to me to capture each person as immediately as possible and without filter, and thus I prefer to photograph my subjects in settings or during activities where they are undisturbed by others.
