This man was a dancer, a choreographer and for more than 40 years the artistic director of The Royal Danish Ballet. His style is unique and his ballets are still being danced all over the world.

This artist always has a pencil and a camera within reach. Her primary artistic media is drawing, painting and photography. For 30 years, the hunt for identity and resolution led Diedrichsen through various media that are linked to each other by an interest in space, territory and the existential. And the themes are to be found everywhere, irrespective of where she happens to be: at home, travelling, nearby things, distant things, objects, places, television, herself. She photographs with the sensitivity of a painter focusing on the atmosphere, light and colour.
