In the Ryogoku district of Tokyo are many heyas (beyas) - training quarters, where sumo wrestlers train and live. Very few of them let outsiders into the heya to watch their practice. However if one has a special invitation or is lucky then the experience of seeing the national sport of Japan at close distance and the wrestlers in all their sweat and blood is unforgettable. And if you are extremely lucky you can even rub shoulders with the great Yokozuna himself.

In a Flemish village, surrounded by nature, Laura and Maurice live together with their daughter Eva. In the garden, Eva plays with her dog or meets with her classmates. Friends and family come along and fill the house with activity. But when Eva is at school, Maurice and Laura shoot what most people prefer to keep to themselves. The porn they make is not populated by Barbies or muscled superheroes. Ordinary women play with men who are also dad or neighbour. A humanity that not only exists in the porn they make, but also emerges behind the scenes and in their family life. In recent years, Laura has built strong bonds with a number of like-minded people: every one of them confident women who have consciously chosen this lifestyle and only depend on themselves with respect to their work. On a regular basis, they go to erotic fairs, rendez-vous evenings or an erotic night club: to make money or to have fun - or both.

Malaysia is a multi cultured country. We have Chinese, Malaysian and Indian cultures, so living in Malaysia can mean very different experiences.

Londonís Kensington & Chelsea has the UKís highest life expectancy at birth. I looked at this Glasgow community and the day-to-day lives of its inhabitants. Iím interested in commuters and capturing people on public transport. My intention was to juxtapose Glasgow with the setting of Kensington and Chelsea in London. Being from Glasgow, I am moved by what I perceive to be missing chunks of life and the bleakness of those shortened lives lived in the Calton, a small pocket of Glasgow, compared to those lived in Kensington and Chelsea. The difference in fortunes is not only apparent in mortality but in the cut of their suits and coats, the accessories they carry, the way the women apply their make-up, even their expressions tell a tale ñ confident and haughty vs downtrodden and malnourished. Using my trademark style of pathos vs bathos and my method of getting up close to my subjects I produced a series of pictures that give an important social account as well as entertain my viewer.

1 in 700 babies are born with Down syndrome. Down syndrome is the most common chromosomal abnormality in new-borns. Specialists call it trisomy 21. Down syndrome is not a disease - it is not curable. People with Down syndrome have often physical and mental impairments that make them different from others. Since 2012 it has been possible to determine by means of non-invasive tests before birth whether a child will have Down's syndrome, as necessary, initiate an abortion. The photo series "one hundred and forty centimetres" raises questions about our relationship with the stigma of "living with impairment," and the technical possibilities to determine this even before birth.

The hair is an intimate part of a person. Hair has some symbolic value: ideas of beauty, strength, eroticism, individuality, sensuality, masculinity, and femininity are closely linked to the hair. ìWhen I bike to school and kindergarten with my children in the morning, we pass a hairdresserís, which is frequented daily by local residents. I was working intensely on another project at the time, but the idea just gripped me.î ìI started visiting different hair salons to capture the moment where we let other people get intimately close and shape the way the world sees us.î ìWhen I meet ordinary people, Iím intrigued by the fact that they have so many fascinating stories and interesting personalities. You donít have to go to distant places to experience drama and the unknown. The odds are, youíll find both right around the corner. In this case the stories were found at the local hairdresser.î The project is not yet finished ñ there is still so much to discover in Copenhagenís hair salons.

WEST BENGAL, INDIA 21 OCTOBER 2013: Blind girls Sonia, 12, and Anita Singh, 5, are born into poverty with congenital cataract blindness. They must accompany their parents everywhere as they cannot be left alone without risk. The surgery to cure this is simple and takes 15 minutes but because of the level of poverty in this family they have been unable to pursue the necessary operation. India has more than 12 million blind, the majority of which suffer from cataract blindness. Poverty is the main reason these millions of people are trapped in this condition. Donor funding has recently enabled both sisters to finally go for this operation. This essay is an attempt to tell the story of their lives before surgery, during the operation to regain their sight and after as they begin to discover light.
