Peter Klint's BA project in Ud & Se magazine
In January 2017, Peter Klint graudated with a very special BA-project. Peter Klint made a narrative story, where he through thorough interviews and portraits retold episodes from the life of his childhood friend, who suffers from more psykiatric diseases. The BA-project was just as much a written essay as it was a photojournalistic story.

Peter Klint co-operated with his friend on telling the difficult story and they continued to work on it after Peter graduated.
Now, the story and pictures are published in the Danish magazine Ud og Se, which is available for free in Danish trains and at Danish railway stations. The magazine can also be read online, where the story is available at page 52.
The story and another selection of images can also be seen on Peter's personal website, where the text is translated into English.
