Some time ago I got an e-mail from some people who were putting together a book. The book was made up of works from different Scandi artists and now the people making it wanted to get a submission from me. The book is now out, it’s called SHARE Scandinavia, and as the name suggests, it’s a book that you can share with others. All the pages are perforated, so that you can rip out the photos and use them as posters or give them to friends or strangers.

Being published on print this way has given me a confidence boost when it comes to my artistic practice. You feel like a different kind of creative professional when people contact you – as a blogger who’s job is showing off yourself – to get your photographic work and not a photo of yourself. I love it, actually!

Guide: My Copenhagen #1

Now that I’ve been living in Copenhagen for a year, I think it’s time for me to reveal som of my favorite places in town, so here’s first part of my tips for CPH!

When living in Gothersgade in Indre By(central CPH) I had a few places in my street that I visited quite often. Two places I loved to go eat was firstly Barburrito for their taco lunch offer and PizzaHuset for their authentic Italian pizzas. On Gothersgade, you’ll also find the nicest little Japanese show, Boutique Taeko, with ceramics and other Japanese gift items.

In central CPH I also always swing by the cute little show, HAY Minimarket for stationary and Pentyl-Marker shopping. When it comes to clothes, my only really regular place is Veras Copenhagen, where I go for clothes swapping. On the other side of the street from Veras, there’s a great café called Kalaset with the most cosy atmosphere.

I’ve also spent tons of time looking at statues and art at Glyptoteket, which has free entrance on Tuesdays. For more nature-y walks, I spent a lot of time on Amagerfælled, when I lived in Islands Brygge. I also was a regular at the little and extremely authentic Italian café, Alimentari, which I think everyone should pay a visit!

vesterbro mit kbh

Vesterbro is my least visited neighborhood in Copenhagen, but since my sister lives there and my fave spot in town is there, I do drop by once in a while. My favorite spot is a people’s house called Absalon, where I go to study, work, eat and play games – there’s room for everyone, ping pong every day and a good mood always!

Absalon, Sønder Boulevard 73

 

I also love taking walks with my sister on Vestre Kirkegaard, a cemetery thet’s quite park like, which is normal for most CPH cemeteries. In the summer I often drop by the huge flea market, Ritas Blå Lopper, and when you take a small break from flea market shopping, the extremely hip kiosk, Kihoskh, is the place to go. If you’re more into pizza, don’t hesitate to pay Itzi Pitzi a visit!

DRESS, BELT & BAG: SECOND HAND, SHOES: SHOEBIZ

When I was hanging out with my friends in a park this Friday, I had to do an outfit shoot and when chatting about locations, the first thing that popped into my mind was a playground. I really started to love shooting photos in an interactive setting in stead of how I started doing these shoots in the beginning – the all white a gray concrete walls.

The older I’ve gotten, the more playful and younger I feel, especially when it comes to creativity and these days photo shooting. When people ask my age, my first thought is saying 19 in stead of my real age of 24. And most times I feel 9. So after the photo shoot, my friend, Kathrine, and I grabbed a swing each and swung as high as we could for quite some time.

How do you like my playground photos?
