#BookNotes: Embody has taken flight, I’m eating ice cream and swimming in the harbor in Copenhagen, while digesting the experience and some of the responses it has elicited from my book tour in USA and Denmark.
On air with Matthew Felix for an hour long conversation about Embody, the why, what, how and personal transformation from my photography work with women.
“I hope with this book, people can sigh and say, ‘I can make peace with myself. I can be all these things and nothing excludes the other. I’m not a static, one-dimensional being,’” she says.
Wow. Spotted on a newspaper poster on the streets of Denmark. Detailed interview about the story behind Embody with images and texts from the book. (Albeit, in Danish, my apologies).
On the naked 'truth' and 'tenderness', women's journey to self through the body, eroticism as a way of being, and sometimes, the terror of being female.
The nuts, bolts and unexpected challenges of launching your own book in Denmark and the U.S.
Great article (in Danish) about the nuances of my work and the book Embody in Aarhus Stiften.
My work and new book Embody featured on Danish Radio & TV newspage.

Lately, I've noticed all the ways the body is used in the battle for something else...
I’m so excited to share that the Unveiled book project is featured in the new issue of Model Society Magazine. Yeah! It's been a joy to collaborate with David Bolt and team.
This piece is bleeding. For someone who likes to conjure and contribute grace and beauty, I find this hard to share ...
Dreams come true: Rachel was trying to get pregnant and kept seeing herself on the beach in bikini, her belly blossoming and baby on the way. We came full circle with this shoot...
After more than a decade of zooming in on women's relationship to body, image, beauty, sexuality and self-expression, I turn my lens on men. Do they want to be seen? And see themselves?
Susan William's tells the truth about Robin William's death to People's Magazine, with one of my photos showing the love between them.
The lens helps me get under the skin, so to speak, of pretense and postures, all the ways we hide, and touch the trembling aliveness within.

After 20 years I've returned to my Nordic roots. I feel like a stranger in a strange land...
What the painted lady knew, and I had yet to learn.
In 2009 I returned to Nepal to complete the pilgrimage that started a decade earlier, at Mt. Kailas in Tibet, and pay tribute to Kali.
All my adventures and creative projects have been ignited by a magical element that, at first, made no sense.
My initiator stood before me in a long purple velvet rope, her hands grasping the ornate handle of a kickass sword.
