SVEN JACOBSEN :: PHOTOGRAPHER

 

 

Sven Jacobsen´s photography is distinguished by a strong draw back to more simplicity and awareness. It is a radical demand to preserve genuine truth in an over-engineered world, which he strives to capture in his pictures. He tries to find bliss in the simplest things and aesthetics of the moment, , in order to render a mood visible. He is mostly concerned with emotionality, lightness and authenticity.

 

For him it is important finding the essence of things, going back to ones roots, back home, embracing imperfections and spreading warmth and truth.

 

This is what he portrays in his emotional and warm picture language, which defies the modern day need for perfection. His images are something of an homage to a world that is very close and beckons daily and the loveliness that can be found in it.
