Jacob Aue Sobol

Jacob Sobol is a Danish photographer. He creates gritty, high contrast black and white photographs of city streets, sex and relationships and other experiences he has encountered. One of my favorite projects of his is called "Sabine" which is about living in Greenland with his girlfriend. The project was made over a 3 year period, and the final product is accompanied by narratives and personal excerpts. The pictures are intimate and inviting. I think they're really gentle and beautiful, despite the harsh nature of some of their compositions.
