«Nikolaj Lund reinvents classical music photography»

Photographer NIKOLAJ LUND was born in Denmark in 1983.

Nikolaj has always had two major interests, classical music and photography.

In 2006 he obtained his Master’s degree in Cello performance from the Royal Academy of Music in Aarhus, Denmark, followed by postgraduate studies at the Sibelius Academy in Finland. In 2008 he decided to change path and devoted himself to photography.

Due to his background in classical music, it was a natural transition for him to keep exploring this field, but now as a photographer.

In 2008 Nikolaj won prizes in two major international photography competitions and in June 2013, US radio station WQXR (largest for classical music in USA) awarded Nikolaj a 2nd place in the top five of most interesting portfolios of classical music across the web.

Imaginative and unique, Nikolaj`s photos has been published in magazines, on blogs and in newspapers across the world with headlines such as “Classical music photos that are out of this world”. His work has been exhibited across Europe, he recently launched his latest book, "Everybody loves classical music... they just haven't found out about it yet!"
