Photographer Laura Bisgaard Krogh, journalist Mikkel Thuesen and photographer Andreas Haubjerg are showing their documentary project ‘A Question of Honour’ as an outdoor photo exhibition in different towns in Denmark, including Svendborg, Sønderborg and Holstebro.
‘A Question of Honour’ shows portraits and tells the stories of children and teenagers, who live in a secure residence. They have fled their families due to an honour related conflict.
The three DMJX alumni explain: “There is a house with an unknown address on a deserted road in Jutland, Denmark. The authorities call the residence a “Safehouse”, even though it looks like an ordinary home. It is a secured residence with surveillance cameras and tinted windows in the kitchen. All with the purpose to protect a group of teenage girls, who have been living in the shadow of their families, who exposed them to threats, violence and suppression”.
Currently, the exhibition ‘A Question of Honour’ is being exhibited in Svendborg, Denmark, where it can be seen untill the 5th of Septmber. Throughout the autumn it will be shown in different cities in Denmark, including Sønderborg and Holstebro.
The story is also being exhibited in Helsinki, Finland as part of the Helsinki Photo Festival and in Copenhagen, Denmark as part of the Danish Picture of the year.
Photographer Laura Bisgaard Krogh, journalist Mikkel Thuesen and photographer Andreas Haubjerg made ‘A Question of Honour’ as their 7th terms in 2019.
