Intimate and curious portraits

Petra Kleis has, for some time now, been one of the most sought after photographers in Copenhagen. As a master of portrait-photography, she has taken countless intimate, and often humorous images of singers, actors, or anyone with a story to tell. Approaching each and everyone with the same open-mindedness, and spontaneity that allows her to produce memorable work.

With colorful backgrounds, strong contrasts, and at times a raw flash Kleis shows off her distinct style and puts her mark on every image. Always finding the particular quality, or look that makes a person unique, a skill she also applies to her series of animal portraits. Whether it's a person or a sad-faced little dog, Kleis presents the viewer with photographs that are honest and unafraid to embrace a little craziness.
