Henriette Sabroe Ebbesen

Henriette Sabroe Ebbesen is interested in the intersection between painting and photography and works with reflections and collage to create surreal effects in her photographs:

"The photograph is a medium that is regularly used to portray reality. When seeing a photograph we therefore often presume it to be trustworthy and real. In my works I aim to play with this sense of reality that we relate to the photograph by distorting the objects and space within the picture frame. With these effects I aim to surprise and confuse and leave one with the question of what is real."

Conceptually her works often deal with identity and the subconscious self affected by and interrelated to the surrounding world.

Henriette's work has been published in many well known as well as niche magazines, like Vogue Italy and China, Mulieris and many others. Currently her work is a part of exhibition The Carlsberg Foundation's Portrait Award "Portrait Now", Fredriksborg Castle, Museum of National History, Denmark.
