"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.
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.
