Kasper Palsnov: The absurdities of the everyday

“Photographing in unfamiliar destinations and in Copenhagen doesn’t differ that much for me,” says Kasper Palsnov. “The real life outside your own window is as beautiful and absurd as any foreign place. You just need to open your eyes and mind and sense it. While It is always fun and interesting to experience and explore an unfamiliar place – it awakens your senses and curiosity and gives you a certain beginner’s mind that can be very inspiring – but it is not essential to my photography. Life just outside my door is as complex and interesting as anywhere else.”

Throughout the Postcards from Copenhagen competition submission period, Studio 1854 wrote a series of editorials profiling photographers living and working in the Danish Capital. Palsnov is a documentary photographer and, although he regularly travels overseas, it is the quirks of everyday life in Copenhagen that continue to catch his eye.
