Sussie Wejnold is an award-winning Danish filmmaker and photographer.


Sussie Wejnold has travelled the world making documentaries of human existence and social issues and is now working as a photo-based artist.


With a precise sense of moods and colors, Sussie Wejnold has developed a personal take on the classic photography.

Her images provide a pathway to our own thoughts and fears, our own recollections of growing up, our own dreams and desires, our own concerns about the passage of time and death. She takes us to places we hadn’t planned on visiting; yet when we go there with her, the surroundings are strangely familiar.

It is photography  that allows us to enter into another world. It’s a place of expression, to search for and say something.


It is beautiful images, strange images that seduce and challenge. Images that revolve around being a human.
