In the early morning hours between 4 and 5 on the 25th of August 2014 Mugabe Kisembo and his wife got their second son, a few hours later his village was attacked by paid thugs, raping, tear gassing and burning down their houses. Mugabe was forced to flee with his newborn son and hasn't returned to the land since. The land was seated next to a piece of land containing oil, so the landlord violently cleared the land, making it possible for foreign investors to settle on the land. No investor has done so yet. Mugabe and the rest of the evicted village, who now lives in a makeshift camp nearby, is still struggling to get back to their land.

An Ethiopian wedding singer doing his thing. At Ethiopian weddings the singing is a very important aspect, and part of the tradition is sticking cash bills on the forehead of each other. If you think the singer or a dancer in the crowd is doing a good job, you can honor their hard work by making a cash bill stick to their sweaty forehead. I'm rather fond of that tradition and this country to say the least, but tomorrow I will head on to Uganda and meet up with @aagaardthomas. whoop #wedding #Ethiopia #photojournalism #dmjxphoto #photooftheday

Thomas hitting Daniel in the face! When they started the training six months ago they had a 20kg difference in weight between them. At the weighing before the match the difference was around 900g. Thomas was loosing weight and Daniel had to gain weight while also working out everyday - one day he puked from eating too much gravy. #fujifilm #photojournalism #gravy #rumble #boxing #fujix100s #dmjxphoto

About six months ago on a late night out drinking, Thomas, who never tried boxing before, dared Daniel to fight him in the ring. The last six months they have been preparing and practicing two times a day. This is Thomas entering the ring before the fight. #fujifilm #photojournalism #fujix100s #dmjxphoto #boxing

I had the pleasure of meeting a truly inspiring human being last year - Dario Fo. It was a great experience for me personally to get to spent some time with him. Sadly Dario passed away today. My thoughts go out to his friends and family. He will be missed and mourned. This is a shot of him waiting backstage at the Betty Nansen theater in Copenhagen last year. #dario #dariofo #rip #photojournalism #portrait

All over the Danish countryside, the situation is the same: the young women move to the bigger cities to study, while the boys stay in the smaller villages on the countryside.

This weekend my story on the boys of the west coast of Denmark launched via the Danish daily @Politiken. Have a look at the mini site we did to tell the story.
