Who: The danish politician Frank Aaen
What: Portrait series for the magazine EKSTRA
Where: Frank Aaens home in Copenhagen
When I've seen photos of Frank Aaen in the past, one of the most common features of these photos has been Franks expression and his smile.
Frank is clearly a man to whom smiling comes easy, but with this portrait series I wanted to show the reader a glimpse of the man behind the smile.
I've tried to capture Frank in some of the quiet moments between the "real" portrait shoots in order to get some photos where he isn't "on", and I have tried to put together a series of photos that shows Frank as a man with depth and a more complet set of emotions than the readers are used to see.
