Maja Dyrehauge Gregersen
Copenhagen Photo Festival
Maja Dyrehauge Gregersen is the manager of the Copenhagen Photo Festival. Under her leadership, the festival has strengthened its focus on experimentation and sustainability as well as a strong international focus and long-term collaborations throughout Europe. As a festival manager, she is concerned with the encounter between photography and the viewer. This involves the overall framing of a work, the presentation as a whole, and broadening the viewer's perspective on things. She says of herself, "I personally have a very straightforward approach to photography: I have to be moved by what I see or I have to be convinced by a strong and consistent concept."
