Meet the correspondents: ÅRHUS, Denmark > Ea Ejersbo

“I’m based in the outskirts of Århus, which is Denmark’s second largest town. Århus is a university town with an active cultural scene and a comparatively young population for Scandinavia. The climate is mild and wet, with long dark and rather chilly winters that make outdoor sketching a seasonal activity. I normally carry a sketchbook and a few pens in my bag or coat pocket, and enjoy sketching in cafés, town squares, at bus stops and while commuting between home and work. I like to observe and register the things that surround me and that I’m a part of, and sketching is a way to experience and share my appreciation of life. One of the things I like about sketching in town is the many layers present everywhere, the history and different functions inherent in the buildings and spaces, the many lives being lived each moment, intersecting with each other or passing unnoticed right under other people’s noses — sketching makes me slow down and see these things in a way that I wouldn’t otherwise do.”
