Born in 1969, Søren Solkær is a Danish photographer who has travelled extensively since the late 1980s, developing a global profile through his artistic projects and commissions for magazines, music labels and advertising agencies.
His portrait work is particularly distinctive, noted for its cinematic tone and iconic colour palette. Søren has portrayed artists such as Paul McCartney, Björk, Amy Winehouse, Patti Smith, Adele, Led Zeppelin, The White Stripes and David Lynch.
