Torkil Gudnason born in Copenhagen.Lives in New York.

Living in New York City, but originally from Denmark, Torkil Gudnason approaches photography with a no-nonsense, Scandinavian sensibility. His style is simple & graphic. He prefers shooting in color in order to play various hues off one another. When asked to list three things he can’t live without as a photographer, his answer is appropriately succinct: light, light & light.

As a 10 year old boy, Torkil received his first camera, a Bolex Super-8. His first pictures were of a trip to Italy, which is where, many years later, he would find his first success as an emerging fashion photographer.

His work includes Vogue, Harpers Bazaar, Elle, Marie Claire, Vanity Fair, Surface, City, Stiletto Magazine, Elizabeth Arden, Maybeline, Pantene, Mac Cosmetics, L’Oreal, Piaget, Guerlain, Shiseido, Estee Lauder, Calvin Klein & Bergdorff Goodman.
