Clemens the Violin Maker...

I was riding my bike around in Copenhagen, taking pictures of shop windows, when a man came out of a really beautiful violin workshop and asked if I was English, because I looked very english. I asked if I could keep taking pictures, and he invited me inside to see his set up, his gun, and to tell me how he hates artists and has been sad for a very long time.

Great candid pictures of craft-mans studio. Got any more photos from this series you can post? Quite intriguing. Keep up the good work.

Hello,

I'm currently in Copenhagen doing a study abroad program, and I'm looking for a subject for my photojournalism project. I'd heard about a man who makes violins, but I haven't been able to find him--I think this might be it. Do you remember what street he's on? Is it in the city centre at all?

Thanks for your help!
