"I always follow my intuition. I do the things I like to do. That's whats make me happy."
Ditte Isager is a photographer and director born and raised in Copenhagen. She lived in London before moving to New York City, where she worked for 7 years. Now she's back in Copenhagen, where she lives with her family and works with contrast in materials, light, color and objects. Her inspiration comes from the Danish masters, Hammershøj & Krøyer.
Started up in London, then moved to New York City. New York gave me a direction, lots of inspiration and a great network of friends and colleagues. Now I'm back in my hometown Copenhagen, enjoying the good life.

I always follow my intuition. I do the things I like to do. That's what makes me happy.
Photo: Grundtvigs Kirke. I love this church. I'm not religious, but this place is amazing. The light, the architecture, the akustisk.
Just follow your heart, do the things you like and do what feels right to you.

A little wild piece of land in a place called Udsholt, by the beach. We bought it last year and we're in the process of building a little wooden house there. I can't wait for bonfires in the wintertime, morning coffee on the beach, swimming all year around. That's going to be my little piece of freedom and paradise.

Have a kid or 2 more, and continue the work I'm doing now. I've just started working as a director as well. I would love to do more of that. It's super inspiring and adds to my work as a still photographer.
Photo: My new home office. Very exciting. Can't wait to get this little place to work from.
