Copenhagen-born Jacob Aue Sobol studied at the European Film College, and then Fatamorgana, the Danish School of Documentary and Art Photography. There he developed a unique, expressive style of black-and-white photography, which he has since refined and further developed. After graduating, he lived in Greenland for three years, and created a book, ‘Sabine’, which was nominated for the 2005 Deutsche Börse Photography Prize. He then travelled to Guatemala, where he made two projects, one of which won the First Prize Award for Daily Life Stories at World Press Photo 2006. His book ‘I, Tokyo’, was awarded the Leica European Publishers Award in 2008. Since then, he has published three more photobooks, the most recent being 2016’s ‘With And Without You’, a reflection on the twenty years since his father’s death.
