The ending of the Kosovo conflict in 1999 marked the end of the Balkan Wars. As NATO forces went into Kosovo, the Serbian military and Police fled north into Serbia, leaving the Serbian population unprotected from the returning Albanian population. The Albanians sought revenge from the atrocities committed by the Serbs, and during the next decade, several riots and attacks threatened the Serbs in Kosovo, forcing more than 200.000 Serbians to flee.
Today, more than 10.000 Serbs are internally displaced in Kosovo, living in small enclaves in the Albanian dominated areas or in the Serbian dominated north.
Many Serbs feel, that the heart of Serbia is Kosovo, and they have never recognized Kosovo’s unilateral declaration of independence made on February 17th, 2008. The situation is still unresolved, since Serbia is under pressure from the European Union to accept Kosovo's independence.
I am a Danish freelance photojournalist based in Copenhagen, Denmark. I believe in the power of the image, that it can make people act. My work follows the tradition of concerned photography, documenting social issues.
After a career as an IT consultant, I changed direction to become a photojournalist. I enrolled at the Danish School of Journalism. As part of my education, I interned for 18 months at the major danish daily Berlingske.
I am available for assignments, both domestic and international. Contact me for assignment inquiries.

Jeg er freelance fotograf med base i København og løser fotografiske opgaver i hele landet og i udlandet.
Jeg tror på at et billede kan påvirke mennesker, og at det få dem til at forholde sig til hvad de ser. Om det så er reportagebilleder fra ulykker of fattige, eller præsentation af medarbejdere i et firma.
Jeg er uddannet fra Danmarks Journalisthøjskole og løser opgaver for dagblade, fagblade, magasiner og virksomheder - alle former for fotografi.
