Artist Bio

Magnum photographer Jacob Aue Sobol attended the European Film College, Ebeltoft, Denmark, and later studied at Fatamorgana, the Danish School of Documentary and Art Photography, in Copenhagen with Christer Strömholm. At Fatamorgana he developed his unique photographic idiom of tight cropping and grainy imagery. After graduating from Fatamorgana, Sobol spent the next three years in the Greenland settlement of Tiniteqilaaq with his girlfriend, Sabine, and her family, living the life of a fisherman and hunter. In his series Sabine, Sobol depicts his life on the east coast of Greenland through his photographs and narrative. An accompanying book, Sabine (Copenhagen: Politiken, 2004), was nominated for the Deutsche Börse Photography Prize in 2005. Sobol’s work has been featured in solo exhibitions at the Museet for Fotokunst, Odense, Denmark; Rencontres d’Arles, France; Fotografisk Center, Copenhagen; C/O Berlin; and ArtScience Museum, Singapore; as well as in group exhibitions internationally, including Face of Our Time (2011), San Francisco Museum of Modern Art. His publications include VEINS: Anders Petersen and Jacob Aue Sobol (Stockport: Dewi Lewis, 2013); Avec Toi (Paris: Maison du Danemark, 2013); Arrivals & Departures (Warsaw: Leica Gallery, 2012); and I, Tokyo (Amsterdam: Mets & Schilt, 2008).
