How are you and your camera a part of strangers’ lives and other cultures? On June 8th Bilder Nordic School of Photography and Copenhagen Photo Festival to a evening in the company of the Danish Magnum photographer Jacob Aue Sobol.
Sobol has been a part of the renowned photo agentcy Magnum since 2007 and has rewarded with several international prices for his work. Sobol is known for his personal, direct and intense snap-shot-like photos from Greenland, Guatemala and Tokyo.
The 35-year-old Sobol is from Copenhagen and he started his carrier at the European Film College in Ebeltoft and since continued his photographic education at Fatamorgana in Copenhagen. In 2000 he travelled to a remote village in Greenland, where he lived as a native with his Greenlandic girlfriend for three years. The stay led to the book “Sabine”, which is a strong portrait of the girlfriend of Greenlandic culture. After that a two year stay in Tokyo awaited the Danish photographer, which resulted in the book “Tokyo”. The book was awarded the “Leica European Publisher Award” in 2008. In 2009 Sobol moved back to Copenhagen, where he’s begun new projects.
This evening Sobol will be talking about his approach to photography, as well as the people and the stories behind his projects.
Time: Friday June 8th
