Biography
Louise Bøgelund Saugmann is a Danish photography- based artist, who lives and works in Copenhagen.
Her artistic practice is driven by a love for the photographic medium. She works primarily analogue, and is interested in what photography can and does.
With a minimalistic style and muted colour palette, she creates photographic spaces, where the starting point often is the personal story, which is extended to more universal issues. Central themes in her artistic work are silence, time and the maladapted/-adjusted.

She graduated from The Arts Institute at Bournemouth with Honours First Class and have since then worked as an artist, teacher and curator. She is co-founder of the artist-run exhibition space KONTORprojects. Her photographic work has been exhibited at museums, galleries and festivals such as; Museum of art in public spaces, KØS (DK), Center of Photography (DK), Photographic Gallery Hippolyte (FI) and Landskrona Foto Festival (SE).
