Summary

Nicolai Fuglsig, born 1972, started his photographic carrier at the age of 16 at a local Danish newspaper.
In 1994 he entered the Danish School of Journalism in Denmark, where he attended the four year education as a photojournalist.

His graduate project , a press book entitled Muslumovo, won widespread international acclaim and was also awarded a prize for the best overseas photojournalistic work by the largest Danish Newspaper, Jyllands Posten.

Subsequently Nicolai Fuglsig received the World Press Photo 1999 1st Prize in the category " Nature and Environment Stories" for the Muslumovo Story and was given the ICP Infinity Award by the International Center of Photography, New York and the Kodak Young Photograher Award. Continuing his development as a photographer and visual story teller Nicolai Fuglsig began experimenting with video and soon came to realize that moving pictures hit a nerve in him.

Fuglsig has succesfully transferred the strong visual style of his still photography into living pictures with commercials and documentaries. Fuglsig is currently devoting himself to the motion picture realm, directing music videos and spots for The Dansih Red Cross and Politiken.
