Michael Richardt

The first time I came into contact with Michael Richardt, he was covering his mother in cream. It was part of the Bunkerlove festival in the north of Denmark where both he and I have been commissioned to create pieces of art. His performance, where he essentially turned his mother into a human-sized cake, should give you a good idea of the kind of work he produces, so it made perfect sense for me to photograph him for the festival and also for my occasional series of artist's portraits.
