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. His first pictures were of a trip to Italy, wich is where, many years later, Torkil would find his first success as an emerging fashion photographer. Torkil’s photography has appeared in Vogue, Maybelline, Pantene, M.A.C Cosmetics, L’Oréal, Piaget, Guerlain, Shiseido, Estée Lauder, Calvin Klein and Bergdorf Goodman. Torkil lives in New York City.
