Søren Solkær

Søren Solkær is a Danish born photographer who has been working with global recognition since the mid 1990s. He is most widely known as a photographer of musicians and bands, having taken iconic portraits of artists such as R.E.M., U2, Björk and The Arctic Monkeys.

Recently, Søren has focused his photography on the elusive world of the street artist. Søren’s street art project has taken him to Australia where he has been photographing the work of Australia’s street artists. The project has been tough, as many street artists do not want their faces to be seen, but Søren has persevered and has assembled enough photographs to create a book and an exhibition.
