Working extensively at home and abroad the Danish photographer, born in 1969 has enjoyed a high profile in fine art photography since 1996.

Søren is best known for his distinctive portraits of musicians. He is most recognised as the man responsible for various iconic images of Björk, The White Stripes, Franz Ferdinand, David Lynch, The Arctic Monkeys, R.E.M. and U2.

Søren’s photography is characterised by finding a tension point between intimacy and edginess. His portraits are often regarded as cinematic in tone with a distinctive colour palette. The inspirations for his style as a photographer is ranging from filmmakers David Lynch and Wong Kar-Wai through to the works of photographer Philip-Lorca diCorcia and painter Caspar David Friedrich.

Søren has released four fine art photography books: Beat City (2006), CLOSER (2011), SOULS (2011) and SURFACE (2015). They are available in selected exhibitions as well as in stores world wide.

Søren’s works have been exhibited in New York, Oxford, Copenhagen, Sydney, Melbourne, London, Edinburgh, Los Angeles, Oslo, Chicago, Vancouver, Milano, Napoli, Bratislava, Reykjavik, Cologne and Prague and are featured as part of the permanent collection in The Royal Danish Library and The National Portrait Collection in Frederiksborg Castle, Denmark.
