Faculty Member Leads with Progressive Photo Project

DIS faculty member Lærke Posselt has spent the last few years on a photography project titled “Bending Gender.”

DIS DIS Copenhagen Semester

Her photo collection shares portraits of 35 individuals that describe themselves as queer. Each photo pairs with a quote, strategically excluding names and sexes. In an article in Berlingske, a Danish newspaper, Lærke shares her vision for the project, touching upon Denmark as a progressive country; the language limitations surrounding gender assignment; norms; and personal outcomes of her photography. Find the article here (in Danish), with select photos featured.

At DIS Copenhagen, Lærke teaches Photojournalism during the semester. Next summer, she will teach Storytelling Through Photography, a course which asks students to utilize photography as a means of making sense of the study abroad experience and beyond.
