Jens Dresling: 25 years

Congrats to Jens Dresling on 25 years of working for Polfoto and Politiken. You can view selections from Jens' career by clicking on the English text on his home page.

I was fortunate that he took time to meet me for coffee when I was in Copenhagen two years ago. Meeting him was special not only because he's an incredibly experienced photojournalist and an extremely nice guy, he's the photographer who took what may be my favorite photograph.

I can't put it into words, but this picture does it for me. I never tire of looking at it. He sent me a scan of the negative earlier this year and I couldn't get it printed fast enough. It's now the only photo hanging in my living room.
