Mathias Svold (b. 1991)
I am a documentary photographer based in Aarhus, Denmark.  Besides pursuing  long term projects I work with various kinds of reportage, portrait and video assignments as a freelance photographer. I hold a BA in Photojournalism from The Danish School of Media and Journalism where I underwent an 1,5 year internship at the Danish daily, Jyllands-Posten. Feel free to contact me for prints, questions or to say hi.
