Danish artist Mikkel Johnsen balances a fine line between landscape and architectural photography, shooting images of a built environment. With no human occupants in the frame, his industrial compositions are uncanny and enigmatic. Johnsen’s approach consists of combining and composing numerous photographs to create both imaginary landscapes and fictionally constructed architecture. It typically takes Johnsen several months to collect these images into a photographic narrative. The juxtaposition of the landscape and the architecture in each photograph captures a snapshot of their mutual relationship and shows the human footprint in the post-industrial era.


Johnsen has been a part of the lineup at Governors Island Art Fair, New York. He has exhibited at Den Frie Centre of Contemporary Art, Copenhagen, BKS Garage, Copenhagen, Kunsthal Aarhus, Denmark, among others.
