Trine Søndergaard’s work is marked by a precision and a sensibility that co-exists with a rigorous interrogation of the medium of photography and its boundaries. Søndergaard is known for her formal depictions of contemporary women that define the concept of the “interior portrait”. In her work the artist reflects on the viewer’s conceptions of images, as well as broader questions of female identity and self-preservation. She often collaborates with her husband and artist Nicolai Howalt to explore concepts of cultural heritage, transitions, evolution, spaces of limbo and the continuum of life and time. Layered with meaning and quiet emotion, Søndergaard’s works are highly acclaimed for their visual intensification of our perception of reality.


Søndergaard was born in 1972 in Grenå, Denmark. She studied drawing and painting in Aalborg and Copenhagen before attending and graduating from Fatamorgana, The Danish School of Art Photography, in Copenhagen. In 2000 she received the Albert Renger Patzsch Award and has since received numerous grants and fellowships, including a three-year working grant from The Danish Arts Foundation. Søndergaard has had three exhibitions at the Chelsea gallery of Bruce Silverstein since 2007.


She has exhibited in numerous solo exhibitions in Denmark and abroad in institutions such as the Louisiana Museum of Modern Art, Denmark; National Museum of Art, Norway; The National Photo Institute of the Netherlands; IFSAK, Istanbul; and the International Meetings of Photography, Bulgaria. The artist has also exhibited extensively with Nicolai Howalt. Amongst them are the Maison de Danemark, Paris, the Fotografins Hus, Sweden and at the Faaborg Museum of Fine Arts, Danemark.


Work by Søndergaard is held in public collections worldwide, including the Israel Museum; Museum of Fine Art, Houston; Hasselblad Foundation, Sweden; Maison Européene de la Photographie, Paris; National Museum of Art, Norway; National Museum for Women in the Arts, England; National Museum of Photography, Denmark; Kiosato Museum of Photography, Japan; Danish Arts Foundation; and the Museo de Arte Contemporáneo de Castilla y Leon in Spain. The artist lives and works in Copenhagen, Denmark.
