"I created this online art store, and named it - VISUDECO® - to exhibit and sell quality reproductions of my work as an artist.

I was born in Denmark in 1963 - by danish parents, and spent my first 12 years in the south of Spain, as a warmer climate was very appealing to them. After their divorce in 1975 my mother and I moved back to Denmark, where I went to a boarding school - and graduated from there in 1982.

I didn't have a clear vision of what to do with my future, so I signed up for military duty at the royal guards. A time of structure, discipline and friendships, which I was already familiar with - from my boarding school years - proceeded, but without greater interest for the long term.

While my military duty was ending in 1983, I was asked to model by a fashion journalist for a newspaper - and with all the fun I had with those jobs - I let things happen in that world.

The next several years I spent traveling in Europe - doing editorial and commercial work for magazines and runway shows for famous designers. This was something I really enjoyed doing, and being in that environment inspired me to take up photography of my own, which I was already interested in - from when I was a kid.

Since - with more than 25 years of experience in photography, I have worked with most genres in the field. In the early 90'ties, I started doing editorial -, and commercial fashion photography and portraits in -, and outside of Denmark.

My interest in landscape and urban photography came later, after I had done fashion for some years, and moving over to this classic kind of photography - was a nice change. I welcomed abstract photography - later on, as a means of good fun, and a way of giving myself a boost of energy. It seemed to do this to me.

As time has passed - I see that making images,  is what I love doing the most. Now - I've chosen to let my passion for creating images lead my way, which is reflected in the available art prints here - at my store.

Why do I do what I do . . . ? Because, I love working with images - both firsthand and in post production. I mainly use my medium format camera and sometimes my phone, and I work on the images from there. I am most satisfied, when my work hangs on a wall, beautifully printed and giving the viewer a good feeling." - Mark Wessel.
