Crazy about food | Nanna Navntoft, Benjamin Nørskov & Sille Veilmark (DK)
Ditte, a 24-year-old woman, is one out of 40-50,000 Danish citizens who suffer from Binge Eating Disorder (BED). The disorder isn’t yet recognized in the Danish healthcare system and therefore Ditte can’t get the necessary help to cope with her addiction, secretive overeating, and ultimately loss of self-control. (Denmark, 2016)
Crazy about food is part of the exhibition Life Exposed that celebrates the 25th anniversary of the The Photojournalist Education at the Danish School of Media and Journalism (DMJX).
The Danish Photojournalist Education is respected internationally as one of the leading schools within its field. For the exhibition the two faculty teachers, Mads Greve and Søren Pagter, have selected ten photographic projects and video productions which have been made at the school within the past three years. The ten stories show the variation in style and topics the students work within – from the revealing reportage to the personal story. The ten stories engage in our contemporary time and connect with the people and places the stories describe, and they tell and convey the reality we do not notice even though it is right next to us.
The exhibition is designed by curator Jens Erdman Rasmussen.
