About Poul Hedegaard:
Black and white are the colors of the soul. When you take everything away, all there’s left is black and white and that’s where you find the truth.
This is the belief of Danish born photographer Poul Hedegaard who during his life long passion for photographing has been working mainly in black and white. He was born on the west coast of Denmark and a large part of his work is focused around the rough nature and rural living here. In his rural pictures he seeks the beauty of the small town living, in the warn-out and deserted farm houses that once were the home of hard working families, and finally in the often rough nature that surrounds the living here.
Poul has been traveling extensively around the world and has an eye for urban living. He captures the atmosphere in the small places, and his photos often have a melancholic feel to them. Today he is living in Copenhagen where he explores the intimacy and characteristics of the city and its people.

My goal is rooted in both the logic of structural mechanics and material engineering as well as the finer artistic elements that make a building and its photograph successful.
Especially being interested in conceptual architectural photography insistent on analytical composition and delicate contrast of structural materials.
