About Morten Andersen
Danish Fashion Photographer Morten Andersen (www.mortenphoto.com) began his career in front of the lens. As a European model for Hugo Boss and Giorgio Armani, he traveled the continent working in numerous international campaigns. By the late 1980's, however, he traded stability for adventure and moved to South America. Instead of just modeling, he began his career as a photojournalist.
Over the past 15 years, he has shot spreads for most of the world's top magazines including GQ, Rolling Stone, Esquire, Arena, The Guardian, The Washington Post, Bloomberg, Marie Claire in a variety of settings. His trademark front row shooting brings viewers into the intimate and dangerous corners of South America.
With a passion for Chilean wine, Argentine football and Brazilian beaches this continent is paradise...
"As a child, sitting in Denmark, I saw the World Cup in 1978 , after that I always thought that I had to visit Buenos Aires and South America one day. One day I left for Buenos Aires. I never came back...."
His freetime is spend playing football and tennis with his friends in Santiago or at his house in the Andes mountains.
"Living in South America is fantastic. I love the lifestyle, the climate, the nature, the people."
