Black & white photography is timeless, powerful and expressive. It is only when I interpret the planet’s landscapes through deep, rich black & white images that a landscape reveals its true nature to me. Black & white landscape photography is a lifelong passion, and it’s what I love doing the most.
Removing colour from a photograph is an incredibly powerful process in terms of the expressive possibilities it opens, one that requires a completely different approach to seeing the world around us. For me, the decision is made long before pressing the shutter; when a landscape is revealing its monochromatic nature to inspire me, I just can’t help it but let go of the colours.” – Jørgen
It is my hope that, in looking at my work, you may share with me the experience of these places.
My photos has been published in magazines, printed and digital media in most countries in the world. I have received several national and international awards.
