I recently shot New York City based dancer, Maria Bruun and decided the perfect location was The High Line. It's balance of nature, design and post industrial beauty is something that strongly appealed to me. Given that The High Line has quickly become one of New York's busiest tourist destinations, getting there early before the crowds filed in was important. We arrived before sunrise, as park officers were unlocking the gates for the day and for most of the shoot we had the place to ourselves.
Coming directly from New York City I knew that the first part of my California series should be out and about in nature. Growing up in the country side of Denmark, this is one thing that I often really miss. I love the quietness and serenity that nature gives you. I met up with model / actress Hanna Bjørnø and we drove from her Mid City LA. apartment up to the beautiful surroundings of Topanga State Park and shot our series of images.
