Originally from Denmark. Torkil Gudnason approaches photography with a no-nonsense, Scandinavian sensibility. His style is simple and graphic. He prefers shooting in color in order to play various hues off one another. When asked to list three things he cannot live without as a photographer, his answer is appropriately succinct: light, light, and light As a ten-year-old boy, Torkil received his first camera, a Bolex super-8.
