Jonas Dyhr Rask
Jonas Dyhr Rask (1980) is a General Practitioner of Medicine, G.P. M.D. from the university of Aarhus with a burning passion for the photographic medium.
His photographic career started in 2008 when he got his first Canon DSLR. Since then he has ventured into film photography of various formats, as well as the FUJIFILM X-System. His father being a wedding photographer, he grew up around cameras.
His photographic inspiration comes from the interplay between humans and their surroundings. Drawing directly from his degree in medicine, his type of street photography seeks to isolate the human element and direct focus towards it, using the cityscape as a stark material contrast. He brings this documentary street photography style to his contract photography work, where he functions as a documentary wedding photographer, as well as a childrens portrait photographer.
Using only available natural light, and using a candid approach, he seeks to document true life as it happens on the streets of Denmark without interfering or intervening.
Photographing mostly using high contrast black and white, he seeks to eliminate colors as a distraction to the subject and scenery, trying to bring story and emotion to the viewer.
