Hi, I’m Magnus
Born in Denmark, my passion for photography was sparked by the discovery of my dad’s old analogue camera, which I stole before running off to Australia.
Years later, my Boy Story series, a five year descent into the subterranean world of male performers, burlesque, go-go dancers, cabaret singers and porn stars, shot again on analogue (this time medium format), was profiled at length in The New York Times, The Guardian and Politiken (among many other journals).
Boy Story was published as a coffee table book, and has been exhibited across Europe and North America. Prints have been acquired by the Victoria and Albert Museum in London as well as numerous private collections.
My next major series takes a similar analogue approach to protests, political upheaval, rallies and independence movements. Shot over five years, its release has been delayed by the pandemic. It will be announced in the months to come.
In parallel, my interest in development - and, frankly, a love of travel - has led to me working closely with Save The Rainforest, Peas Promoting Equality in African Schools, The Kofi Annan Foundation, International Red Cross and Red Crescent Museum, and The United Nations Industrial Development Organization.
I divide my time between Berlin and London. (Again)
