Henrik Emtkjær Hansen (1980) is a Danish photographer with a focus on personal landscapes in and around the Wadden Sea area, Denmark.

His pictures tell about a place and, at the same time, - although there isn't any presence of a human being - they show the vividness of his presence. The quality of Hansen’s work concerns just exactly this connection between human and nature: more precisely the ambiguity between human tracks and natural things. Natural shapes and man's objects resonate each others also thanks to his minimalistic/non-rhetorical approach to the subject, which emphasizes this ambiguity.
