Casper Sejersen Denmark

Copenhagen-based Danish photographer Casper Sejersen (b. Aalborg, 1968) works in fashion, film, fine art and commercial contexts. He has created numerous editorials over the past decade for international publications including Another Man, AnOther, Dazed and Confused and Modern Matter, and has made fashion campaigns for brands such as Helmut Lang, Burberry, Hugo Boss, Kenzo, Fendi, Louis Vuitton and Dior.

 
Sejersen’s approach to editorial and commercial work foregrounds a particular type of psychologically charged ‘character’: he frequently works with actresses Charlotte Gainsbourg, Isabell Huppert, Kirsten Dunst and Cate Blanchett in this context, since each of these women have an especially strong ‘character type’ inflected with psychological tension or erotic undertone. 
 
Belongs to Joe, published by MACK in 2015, contains a series of ‘orgasm portraits’ of the cast of Lars Von Trier’s film Nymphomaniac (2013). More broadly, the book is a photographic response to the film (accompanied by contributions from art historian Cecilie Høgsbro) that amounts to a bold interweaving of ecclesiastical history, sadism, fascism, pyrotechnics and botany
