I was wondering if you might wanted to feature some of my photographs on your blog?

I am an fine art photographer from Denmark, Copenhagen.
I have been working for the Danish Royal Ballet for nearly 2 years and the 3rd of May my solo exhibition at ArtCenter Silkeborg Bad in Denmark will open.
The 7th of may my artbook with the artworks and an iBook about the creation of the project will be released.

You can see a sample of my artworks in this video:

My artbook can is sampled in this video:

And this is a video from the multitouch iBook about the process of making the art works:

You can see all my photographs on:

I hope that you would like to feature my artworks and if you would like to now more then you’re are welcome to write me.

Sincerely

Ingrid Bugge

ARTIST BIO:
Ingrid Bugge (born 1968) photographer and has had several solo projects and exhibi- tions, among other things “Between the Lines” at The National Museum of Photography 2012, “When Math Talks” at The University of Copenhagen 2012 and “Surrender” for Grundtvig’s Church 2011. Previously she was a creative developer for ex. DR, The Na- tional Museum and Tycho Brahe Planetarium, with a focus on creating visual stories on new media and short films.

ARTIST STATEMENT:
The human body, its movements, its stories, its intimacy, and its honesty. These are my artistic passions.

In my art projects, I always start by examining the subject, which somehow is also an examination of some part of me. I mirror what I see and thus I must feel and understand before creating my own interpretations. This is a parallel process (between) the subject and me.

I collect different motives and textures with my camera.
With this material as my foundation, I construct my own universe with photographs. I create my own interpretation through collages of pictures; I work with different color schemes and play with textures.

The architecture of my photos is inspired by classical artists and their work with background, middle ground and central subject. I am amazed by their ability to manipulate light and darkness as well as their passion for dense expression. This is why I use the dramatic effect of contrasts when I create shapes and narratives with my photographs.

My work primarily consists of classic art prints, but I also work with installations for both decoration and for artistic multimedia platforms.

I would like to hear what attracted you to ballet. We each have a story and I’m sure you they are all interesting.

That’s a good idea – it’s something people keep asking me and something that I’ve grown to understand more and more as I’ve kept dancing. Will definitely write about this soon! (Once I’ve finished my PhD…!)
