The BIG’s Amager Resource Center report in Copenhagen led you to win the A + Awards Photography 2019. Can you tell me about it?

The day I arrived at the site to do the shooting I discovered, by chance, that in front of the power station there was a water park where kids enjoyed jumping into the water thanks to the kitesurf boards towed by a kind of ski-lift . This discovery, linked to the fact that I knew the building would become a ski slope, prompted me to put on a wetsuit and take many shots in which the building became the backdrop for the stunts performed by these guys.

The construction of the Amager Resource Centre has had a strong impact on the city because it is practically the only hill in Copenhagen. After understanding this concept, I shot from many different points of view to understand how the new building related to the city.
