Since the beginning of Nybo Photography in 2010, founder and photographer Kasper Nybo has documented human stories, struggles and triumphs around the globe. Kasper's images carry a poetic tone that, in a unique combination of photojournalism, art and documentary work spans many different expressions and formats. His images are commissioned by editorial clients, organisations and institutions in need of communicating strong stories - often on delicate subjects.
Through a subtle balance of trust, intimacy and silent observation, Kasper is able to quickly access and explore the depths of humanity that is the core of all projects by Nybo Photography. Kasper often depicts people in vulnerable situations creating stories aimed at awakening and stirring human connection across borders and cultures.
The clients of Nybo Photography are editorial, humanitarian and social organisations as well as government bodies, cultural institutions and private fine-art collectors. Red Cross, UNICEF and The World Bank are among some of the organisations using Kasper Nybo's visual stories to appeal to audiences and to help achieve their goals.
Award-winning photographers like Sebastian Liste (Spain), Alixandra Fazzina (UK) and Zoriah Miller (US) have been mentors of Kasper, shaping and strengthening his skills in the creation of strong and honest feature stories. Kasper's formal training includes Danish Institute of Graphic Arts (DK), Danish School of Media & Journalism (DK), NOOR Images (NL) and World Press Photo (NL).
Kasper is based in Copenhagen, Denmark, living with his wife and two sons of 4 and 9 years. His studio is located in an old courtyard-building tucked in between a French cheese shop and a group of street lawyers. At any given chance - or season - you will however be more likely to find him exploring remote corners of Scandinavian nature with friends and family (and their 9 person tipi...!)
With Nybo Photography, founder and photographer Kasper Nybo seeks to awaken and stir human connection across borders and cultures. In a divided world, he seeks to contribute to stronger unity through better understanding of others’ lives and situations. His images are commissioned by editorial, humanitarian and social organisations as well as government bodies, cultural institutions and private fine-art collectors.
The focus of Nybo Photography is often social and humanitarian stories, but just as often Kasper uses art and culture to communicate and explore deeper emotions that connect us all.
Social & Humanitarian
Social and humanitarian feature stories are where Nybo Photography started. For Kasper it is the exact opposite of starvation, catastrophes and death. More often than not natural disasters rob people of everything but their will to go on, and, though images of people in the process of rebuilding their live might not always be pretty as daisies, they remain some of the most vibrant examples of human spirit.
Arts & Culture
Artists - and especially dancers - also make up a very special part of Kasper’s work, often being the entry point into exploring larger cultural issues in society. This is done through film and art-photography in close collaboration with several small and large-scale cultural institutions and individuals (see References)
Nordic & Arctic explorations
A growing part of Kasper’s focus is the nordic and arctic regions, documenting and exploring heritage, culture and climate impact in these harsh but fragile environments. He is a natural choice as photographer and visual backbone on expeditions within ethnographic, geographic and anthropological research fields.
Regardless of format or platform the core of all projects by Nybo Photography is always the exploration of humanity and the honest portrayal of the open and vulnerable person in front of us.
