Jeppe Bøje Nielsen
I graduated from the Danish School og Media - and Journalism in 2012. I'm currently working as a freelancer in Copenhagen, where I'm living with my girlfriend and my four-year old daughter Nola, and our latest arrival (a son), born mid-september 2015.
My work focuses on the individuals relation to power, death, fear and hope. I work mainly with stories that enable me to approach the depths of human feelings, that are outside of what I would consider the spectrum of normality. Feelings that defy the notion of 'daily life.'
I look for stories and emotions, that are somehow magnified by events, that are either destructive og constructive in nature: somewhere between the abyss of death, and the highs of falling in love.
The project Lourdes is perhaps an exception to that statement: it is geographically limited and doesn't have any main characters. The project is an personal exploration of what I saw in Lourdes: a historical perspective that went far beyond the geographical limitations of the city and the sanctuairies: With the city of Lourdes, comes a century of heated debate in France, the legitimacy of the Catholic Church in light of the worldly resurfacing abuse-scandals, and the sheer fact that at least in France, the religious institutions go to great lengths to provide the poor and homeless with food and shelter.
Lourdes is also a work-in-progress, that I will finish in the next 6-7 years. I will take one trip annually, attempting to focus my story on different aspects from time to time."
