Gert Lavsen is a photographer based in Denmark. He enjoys photographing conceptual still lifes as well as landscape and other nature subjects.
His photographs have been published in magazines and commercial advertising projects around the world.
'I view the art of photography as a subtractive process, a distilling of reality into a personal vision. As such I often use the tools of modern photography, filters, digital enhancements etc., to try to capture in an image the emotions I felt at the moment I tripped the camera’s shutter.
Though trained as a computer scientist and currently working as software developer, photography is a major part of my daily life.
I experienced a renewed enthusiasm and appreciation for photography after I started using analog medium-format cameras in addition to my 35mm cameras.'
