”Henrik is photographing with the heart. With a traditional camera and film Henrik Brondsted creates poetic realism in his pictures, He has the special gift of catching the moment and make people open themselves ” so they wrote in Danish Television’s journal.
Ever since the time I bought my first Leica M3 – at the age of 15 -I have been focusing on the human face and the female body. Still doing portraits I am also working with pictures where identity fades to give place to a feeling of duration. Long exposure and grains.
There is so much reality and sharpness in photography and I am going another way, a way where my aim is to add poetry to the pictures.
Visual poetry. Putting together different parts that do not logically belong together. Create a feeling, a sentiment, a story beyond reality.
