12 QUESTIONS WITH MORTEN SØRENSEN
What made you start to photograph?
Instagram believe it or not. Instagram reignited an old passion for photography.
What is the best part of working as a photographer?
It’s that moment, when you just know, that this is going to be a good photo. Sometimes, I can feel it right when I click the shutter. Also, I love the feeling, when I can sense what I see in an old shot of mine, or some of my pictures, in new connections. A photo can transport you back in time and make you feel or smell the surroundings again. I love that.
What is the worst part of it?
The decisions on which photo to use and how to edit it. It can really drive me crazy sometimes.

What makes you nervous?
Since I adapted the "leave fear at the door" quote, which a former boss told me, I tend to not become that nervous anymore. or maybe it’s an age thing?
What makes you laugh?
That really rude British sense of humor...
What kind of pictures do you have on your walls at home?
I have many kinds of pictures actually. Some are my own test prints, some come from exhibitions. I have a huge painting by Danish painter Lars Ahlstrand that I am very, very fond of.

When somebody acquires my work. It is simply the most satisfying feeling, and it makes me both astounded and happy at the same time.
