My name is Lasse Damgaard, I’m from Denmark and I was born in 1989.
I got my first camera – a small, digital compact Olympus – in 2005, and half a year later I emptied my bankaccount, bought myself a Canon 350D – and started what has become an obsession; depicturing all of life’s little moments that most people seem to overlook.
To date, I have spent countless hours on my ‘hobby’, and have apparently become somewhat decent, with a couple of contests won, a feature in a magazine and a handful of photos in an international exhibition.
After going backpacking with my camera around both the United States and Europe, I’ve been working on a series of portraits of people on the street entitled ‘American Portraits’ and ‘European Portraits’. Hopefully someday, there will be 5 additional continents to that series – only time will tell!
