Simon Skipper Christiansen
I am an internationally recognised and prize winning documentary photographer based in Copenhagen, Denmark.
My editorial and commercial work has been published in The Guardian, Unicef, Berlingske, BT, Politiken, Kristeligt Dagblad, DR, TV2, Magasinet 360, ELLE, Copenhagen Open, One Love Skate Mag, Pusher Skate Mag, Københavns Universitet, Lexington, Danish Union of Journalists, Carlsberg, Tech Festival, Northside Festival, Aarhus Festival Week, GAFFA among others.
I create images to reflect myself in my surroundings and to help people understand each other. Visual storytelling is a very powerful medium to emphasise certain nuances of a story or a situation, and I use this power to investigate and express (sub)cultural trends and the identity of those involved, both in my portraiture and in my long term projects. Growing up as an outsider, I’m attracted to quirks, the surreal and to the fleeting moments of wonder that lie hidden in our daily lives. Through my documentary work, I strive to explore, express and affect the world I see, towards the better.
