"In July of 2001 my wife and I had our first, long-wished-for child. Two months later 9/11 struck, and I went from joy to fear. My life as a photojournalist, documenting the hotspots of the world, was changed forever; I did not want my children to grow up without a father.

I restructured my life, wrapped myself around my family, and turned my gaze inwards.
Then I began to feel a need take stock. I began to take a closer look at what kind of world my children were going to grow up in, and what I carried from my childhood that I could pass on to them.

'After my time / Tiden efter min tid' is my journey back in time, back to my childhood, to all the places I have lived and from which I carry memories.
My meeting with the past turned out to be more difficult than I had imagined. It was worth it though. It was a journey back in time to find my own roots; a journey that taught me to look ahead by looking back." (Joachim LADEFOGED)
