Rasmus Flindt Pedersen (40) is a Danish photojournalist, documentary filmmaker and father of two with 10+ years of experience documenting the world around him. He has won several awards for his work and has had his images exhibited in places like New York, Tokyo, Paris and Copenhagen to name a few.
His work in the worlds hotspots has focused more on depicting the everyday struggle of civilians trapped in the war zones than on the actual fighting.
It’s not that the dramatic photos of combat isn’t important to him it’s just that he findes struggle of regular people much more impactful.
Rasmus’ latest war assignment brought him to Ukraine to document the initial phases of the Russian invasion at the beginning of the year.
During the summer Rasmus has spent more time home to focus on his family and the birth of his second son before he’ll start work on a documentary film project early next year.
