Trine Søndergaard is considered one of the most significant Danish photo artists of her generation. In 2000 she was awarded the prestigious German Albert Renger Patzsch Book Prize for the series Now That You Are Mine.
Later a number of other honours have followed, including the three-year working grant of the Danish Arts Foundation in 2008. The directness of the first works, with their point of departure in documentarism, has been succeeded over the years by greater introspection.
Her work is characterized today by an insistent stillness. Nevertheless the pictures speak to the viewer with a rare strength of which the series Strude is a well-known example. The portraits of women from the island of Fanø in historical costumes were shown at the Glyptotek in a solo exhibition in 2010.
