About the collection
We are constantly shown photos of iconic species all across the globe. Photos of polar bears, orangutans, and lions are in our feed and on our television screens all the time. Growing up in Denmark, I never had the chance of going to see these beautiful animals and instead, I wondered what my local nature had to offer.
What I discovered photographing my local nature was that it was as wild and beautiful as these far away places. This collection tries to encapsulate what local nature is for me. All of the photos in this collection have been photographed within 50 km of my home and all of them showed me that there is more to the local nature than meets the eye.
