Frederikke Brostrup

Award-winning photography by Frederikke Brostrup

Frederikke Brostrup (born 1969) I live in the middle of Copenhagen with my gorgeous husband. I am a mother to an adult son who is my biggest inspiration in life. I love knitting, drinking, laughing, eating, fishing, dancing….and if everything is possible around a fireplace – I won’t ask for more! I have been working full time as a photographer since 2007. I work all over the country DK My work is characterised by capturing childhood and familylife in the purest way. Especially environment portraits and relations. I am drawn to the relations, the poetry and the real-life in families. My work is kind of timeless, and I hope to show a bit of all the secrets we often miss. My love for children is very strong – as I hope you see in my work and you feel when you work with me.
