Six Degrees of Copenhagen

Six Degrees of Copenhagen. Taking its point of depature from the idear that every person
on Earth is connected by only Six degrees of separation, this series of photos depicts
human connections through the city of Copenhagen. The setup is that I portray random
people that I engage with in the streets, and that these chance meeetings end up with me
taking personal photos of these people, who then each send me on to another person, who I
can portray, who then gives me the name of another person...
