In 2015, Threin Offossen won 2nd place in the Denmark National Award competition, part of the Sony World Photography Awards, the world’s largest photography competition.
In an interview with the World Photography Organisation, she talks of her approach to photographing nature and what it was like to meet the Queen of Denmark.
“My photographic aim is to interpret what nature brings us and what a wonderful world we are living in, to show which richness we are surrounded by and convey proudness of our region for that. Though getting all this positive attention and exposure I can’t imagine what will happen next. I feel very humble and for everything that continues to happen around my photography career I am just as surprised and thankful as the very first time someone told me I made a good picture. What I do hope is that my pictures in the future will bring benefit for my region Lolland and especially my hometown Nakskov, which have such a special place in my heart. Overall my aim is to show how much beauty and richness we are surrounded by, to make people happy and raise spirits in joy of our wonderful world.”
