Jesper Houborg (1980) is an award-winning visual journalist with an ethnographic background based in Copenhagen, Denmark. A graduate from MA in Photojournalism and Documentary Photography at London College of Communication, and a student at the Danish School of Media and Journalism (DMJX). A former graduate from Fatamorgana The Danish School of Art Photography. I also hold a BA degree and MA studies in International Development Studies and Philosophy from Roskilde University, Denmark.

I mainly work on long-term projects but is also available for reportage features, portraits and various assignments.

In my practice, I see vulnerability as a driving force to explore the self and others, as a way to understand, to give dignity to the outskirt of society, or to issues being underrepresented. 

I am attracted to existential questions that shape our human condition. My visual research explores the different conditions we live in globally. With a focus on the relationship between the Global North and Global South, I seek to explore social issues related to representation, identity, human rights, power and politics.
