SØREN SOLKÆR

Søren Solkær (born 3 September 1969 and formerly known as Søren Solkær Starbird), is a Danish photographer best known for his portraits of musicians. He is most recognised as the man responsible for various iconic images of Björk, The White Stripes, Franz Ferdinand, David Lynch, Arctic Monkeys, R.E.M. and U2.

In August 2012 Søren Solkær started his project SURFACE. The portraits in SURFACE show artists who work in the public space. The artists are photographed in cities across the world with their own art work, in a subjective and staged manner using artificial light and often props and masks. The resulting portrait aims to investigate the relation between the artist and his work and its space in the urban environment. The aim is to portray the most significant figures in public and street art both on the contemporary scene as well as the pioneering figures. The book was published in March 2015, followed by numerous exhibitions worldwide.
