Carsten Snejbjerg
I became interested in photography during a 3,400 km bike trip through China and Vietnam in 1997 and in 2000 I entered the Danish School of Journalism. I now work freelance for various magazines and newspapers and am working together with Getty Images. My images have been published in Vanity Fair, Newsweek, Le Monde, Der Spiegel, Stern, GQ, La Repubblica Delle Donne, Smithsonian magazine, Samvirke, Kom Magazine, Euroman etc.
I also teach at the Danish School of Journalism.
I live in Copenhagen and have two children and a granddaughter.
