The Reinvention of Forms
- Om forfatteren
The first monograph by Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen presents a striking collection of the Danish photographer’s cinematic compositions. Fragmenting bodies, architecture and nature, Bjerre-Poulsen reinvents the forms around him as luminous images, creating intimate and enigmatic juxtapositions that invite the viewer to look again and imagine what lies beyond the frame. A trained architect, Bjerre-Poulsen brings to life his understanding of tactility, minimalism and detail by anchoring his still life series around a recurring motif of spherical shapes and through rendering each image in exquisite black and white tonalities. Alongside the mesmerizing aesthetics of the photographic work, THE REINVENTION OF FORMS also includes interpretations of Bjerre-Poulsen’s practice from his close friends and collaborators, including an introduction by the seminal Finnish architect Juhani Pallasmaa and a short fictional story by prize-winning Danish author Thomas Rydahl.

Jonas Bjerre-Poulsen is an architect, art director and photographer based in Copenhagen. Jonas shares his passion for phenomenology—the philosophical study of human experience— with clients that range from established design brands to international magazines.
Trained at The Royal Danish Academy of Fine Arts in Copenhagen, Jonas mixes his spatial sensibility and understanding of shape with conceptual thoughts and visions that bring creative projects to life. ‘I have a strong vocation for creating thoughtful projects that stand out in an understated, refined manner. For me it is all about balance. Balance between richness and restraint, between order and complexity. Minimalism that acquires softness and visual matter that assumes haptic qualities,’ Jonas says of his work, which has won numerous international awards.
