Trine Søndergaard (b. 1972) is a Danish photography-based visual artist. Søndergaard lives and works in Copenhagen, Denmark. Trine Søndergaard’s work is marked by a precision and a sensibility that co-exist with an investigation of the medium of photography, its boundaries and what constitutes an image. Layered with meaning and quiet emotion, her works are highly acclaimed for their visual intensification of our perception of reality.

She has been awarded the Albert Renger-Patzsch Prize and has received numerous grants and fellowships, including a three-year working grant from the Danish Arts Foundation. Trine Søndergaard’s work has been shown in solo and group exhibitions around the world and is wellrepresented in museum collections, for instance Museum of Fine Arts Houston-USA,  MUSAC-Spain, Gothenburg Museum of Art-Sweden, The National Museum of Norway, The Israel Museum, Maison Européenne de la Photographie-France, and AROS-Denmark.

Trine Søndergaard has published books with Steidl, Hatje Cantz, Hassla Books and FabrikBooks. She has also exhibited and published extensively in collaboration with the Danish artist Nicolai Howalt.

Trine Søndergaard is represented by Martin Asbæk Gallery, Copenhagen, and Bruce Silverstein Gallery, New York.
