Året, København 2018 (The Year, Copenhagen 2018) is a monthly photobook publication featuring contemporary works by Copenhagen-based photographers engaged in portraying the city of Copenhagen during 2018. Every month 5-10 photographers spend the 20 first days of the month photographing the city, consequently putting together a photobook featuring the results. Presenting different artists every month, Året will gather throughout the year a growing and diverse collection of perspectives and practices.

While Copenhagen has been named the most liveable city in the world several times, and we have seen many beautiful vistas of the Danish capital, the reality is always far more complex. This diary representing varied and personal points of view will offer readers an uncensored and unfiltered portrait of the city: “This is our Copenhagen”.

About the Artists
Julia Mejnertsen works with from personal experiences and narratives. Mejnertsen work is infused with nostalgia, an interest in family mythologies and the layers of local landscapes and every day objects. identity, often expressed in (wo)man’s (attempt at) domination over nature, is a prevalent theme often repeated in my work in one way or another.

Frederik Danielsen (b.1995 in Sønderborg, Als) attended Copenhagen Film & Photography School, The Royal Academy of Art, The Hague.

I was born in 1978 and grew up in Copenhagen. Since the age of 15, I have had a great passion for graffiti art, street art, street art and expression. I draw inspiration from what moves in street life, smolder in society and live in the imagination.

The film editor Åsa Mossberg comes from Gothenburg but is based in Copenhagen, where she has run her own company TotalFilm since 2003.

Natascha Thiara Rydvald  graduated as a still photographer at the Danish Technical School of Photography and later from the Danish Film School as a D.O.P. – Cinematographer, and have worked on documentaries, features, art, dance and indie film, films for theatre productions, but also commercials and music videos.

Michael Søndergaard’s work is concerned with ideas of expressing and defining masculinity and identity.

Sara Zanella in 2014 I moved to Denmark to study at Fatamorgana.
