Petri as the setting.   

 

"When you enter a hotel, it is like entering a theater or a movie, where one becomes part of the performance. That fascinates me.
In a hotel you also get the opportunity to be another version of yourself. Daily life can be overlooked and you can make room to immerse yourself or focus on new sides of yourself. I have created a number of portraits in the hotel universe to investigate it further". Søren Solkær on choosing Skt. Petri for the project.
