Born in Hong Kong in 1983 to Danish parents, Mikkel Kristensen is a Copenhagen based snapshot photographer and co-founder of Copenhagen born party-turned-fashion brand POP Copenhagen.
Mikkel began taking photos of the colourful guests at the underground ‘POP’ parties he hosted with friend & designer Kasper Henriksen in the late 00’s. In 2008 the two friends launched POP Copenhagen as a mens & womenswear brand ‘inspired by these, and all tomorrow’s parties…’
Through his work as POP’s marketing & art director, Mikkel found new purpose with his fascination for analogue film, snapshot aesthetics & beautiful creatures. He started photographing friends and models wearing the clothes in hotel rooms & stunning sites around the world while touring with the collections, and eventually the official POP campaigns.
Since summer 2015, Mikkel has published work with P Magazine, C-Heads Magazine, Sticks & Stones Agency, YAF Magazine, Next Door Model Magazine, Off The Rails Magazine, Last Daze & We Are The People Magazine and his photos are exhibited and sold at the online gallery Stolen Moments Gallery.
