During her work for the likes of Mary Ellen Mark and Patrick Demarchelier, Nina Mouritzen was simultaneously labouring over her own projects that centered around downtown New York in the early 00’s. Since then, she has continued to document many figures of the music and art scenes for publications such as Dazed & Confused, Spin, and Tokion, as well as showing her self portraits, portraits, and cityscapes in exhibitions in New York, Copenhagen, Mexico, Portugal and several other places. Mouritzen’s photographs tend to have an intimate journalistic and almost diary-like atmosphere to them. Nina Mouritzen was born in Copenhagen, Denmark in 1980 and moved to New York City in 1999. She continues to live and work there.
