We first stumbled across the photography of Hanni (aka justhanni) on Instagram where he’s gained a large following for his charismatic VSCO Cam iPhone photography. He tagged our Cord Taco in a photo of his everyday bag and when we checked out his photos, we were immediately charmed by the quote on his profile, “Life is too short to remove USB safely”. Since then, we’ve been following along with his quiet, thoughtful photography from Denmark (and beyond) which has captivated us with its inventive use of symmetry and light.
How do you start your day?
With coffee! On the way to work (I vary between car, metro and bike) I listen to some nice tunes to get me started and catch up with my Instagram feed/comments.
What do you carry in your everyday bag?
Always my Fujifilm X20, extra iPhone charger and two different sets of earphones (neatly wrapped in my TIG products :), sunglasses and a shemagh.
How does Copenhagen inspire your photography?
Copenhagen keeps surprising me and showing me new sides of itself. It’s a city that’s going through a lot of change and it allows for constant inspiration that way. I also love following my fellow Copenhagen Instagramers’ takes on our city – it seems like there’s always new angles and spots to discover.
What do you shoot with when you’re not on your iPhone?
Currently I’m in between DSLR’s, but I’m planning on getting a Canon 6D soon. So at the moment I’m having great fun shooting with my Fujifilm X20.
Your favorite travel destination?
Just one favourite destination? That’s a tough one… I’ve been fortunate enough to visit so many great places. But China really stood out. Being an immensely large country, I was amazed at its diverse milieus and cultures. In just 15 days I experienced hi-tech metropolises, an historic wall, quaint river villages, mystical mountain ranges and tropical environments.
What can’t you live without?
What are you listening to/reading/watching at the moment?
Like the rest of the world, I’m following Game of Thrones right now, but honestly I don’t have much time for TV or reading. Perhaps just for reading Instagram comments, ha!
