Søren Rønholt (b. 1969) is a visual artist having photography as his principal media.
Thematically, Rønholt´s work is characterized by a fascination with the immanent drama. A trait and a trademark you notice in both his person portraits and his photographic tableaus of landscapes and urban Badlands.
As a portrait photographer, Rønholt is highly appreciated. He is acknowledged for his ability to fashion a presence in each portrait that encapsulates the object´s distinct and matchless details and creates an almost sculptural and iconic expression of the portrayed. Consequently, Søren Rønholt is a preferred photographer of actors, authors, artists and musicians throughout Scandinavia.
Parallel to his person portraits, often showcased in magazines, album covers, marketing campaigns or individual portfolios, Søren Rønholt expresses himself as a visual artist in books and exhibitions, perhaps most known for The Nordic Book (2014), distributed by German publisher seltmann+söhne.
A focal motive in his artistic photography is tableaus of raw and desolate, often majestic nature or urban structures of Scandinavia. From the grey rocks of the Faroe Islands, the Moonlike topography of Iceland to the sculptural wasteland of the Danish city Ørestad, each photo often seek to capture the almost zen-like calm of the motive, that should make you feel at ease, but somehow make you uneasy because you sense the drama, that just occurred or is about to occur.
