Copenhagen’s trendy Fox design hotel was the venue on October 1 of a one-day art project arranged by (T)here, a new York-based art magazine. Participants, including award-winning Danish photographer Martin Soeby, each picked a task they would do while being interviewed on video. Soeby was to do portraits.
“Copenhagen might have the highest population in the world of blond girls and I decided to do a portrait of some of them while jumping for me.”
Some of the results can be viewed in the gallery above.

“This is the result of my very spontaneous contribution. I street-cast 16 wonderful blond girls on various locations in Copenhagen and asked them to jump.”
Soeby, who worked as a freelance assistant to Annie Liebovitz and other well-known shutterbugs in New York after completing his studies in Denmark, has won 10 international awards during the past five years. Ford, Burberry and Amnesty International have been among his clients.
Did Soeby spot any fashion trends while completing the street photo project?
“The tight leather jacket is still seen everywhere, and black is popular,” Martin observes.
The issue of (T)here containing the Copenhagen art project is due to be published in Spring 2011.
