Martin Joergensen - Denmark

I'm a Dane, born 1959 in Copenhagen, who has been  photographing extensively from my teens, semi­ professionally in periods, but currently I shoot as a pastime. I was diagnosed with MS in 2007 and have been using a manual wheelchair for the past 10 years.

I shoot most if my pictures sitting in the wheelchair. I can stand and walk short distances, but I'm fully depending on the chair in my daily life. Many of the pictures are shot when I'm out and about with my wife,  Birgitte, and our dog, Divus the Sheltie, so they often appear in the frame.

I currently make my living as a self employed IT-consultant.
