Emilie Dalum (Denmark)
The small treasures of everyday life become magical if one has an open mind and dares to get up close. With a camera in hand, Emilie takes this to heart and expresses an appreciation for the uniqueness of each human being, each life, each happening. Her way of working always demonstrates a highly intuitive and non-narrative approach.
In February 2016 she was diagnosed with cancer in the lymphatic system. Her project for this year‘s STEYPA will focus on her inner and outer journey throughout her treatment for recovering. Thereby she will get closer to herself this year.
The project continues, and the displayed pictures wont be her final series. The title is simply Emilie.
Emilie was born in Denmark in 1989. She completed further education at Fatamorgana, the Danish School of Documentary and Art Photogra-phy, where she has refined her personal photographic voice by mainly photographing people in her life. She holds a BA in European Ethnology from the University of Copenhagen.
Her home base has been Iceland since August 2012.
This is her fourth time taking part in STEYPA.
