Selected to participate in Next to you - essays on nordic-russian realities 2019. The photographic master class is arranged by Nordic Journalist Centre for seven nordic and seven russian photographers and takes places in April in Kaliningrad, Russia and in may in Reykjavik, Iceland. The master class aims to look more closely at the relationship between the nordic countries and Russia - we are neighbors, but how well do we know each other.
The workshop is mentored by award winning photographers Jana Romanova and Mads Greve and will end up in a joint photobook with 14 photo essays. Amongst the participants are also danish photographer Kasper Palsnov and Finnish photographer Emilia Kangasluoma.
With the name SoupSteak&ICE the band is the personification of a musical genre that is often looked down upon. But theres no need for that here - even though they came one year early for a job at a local village hall.
The four members navigated within their enormous repertoire of popular music with military precision to affect both the guests feet and vocal cords.
These kinds of bands are the architects behind a succesfull christmas party and a special breed of musicians that can push their ego aside.

nominated for prizes. I received a honourable mention in the ‘Sports Reportage’
category for the portrait series of young synchronized swimmers called ‘Underwater Princesses’. The judges write the following on the portrait series:
“The concept with the young synchro-girls is well thought of by Tobias Nicolai. The girls’ expression locks you in.
They look grown up, even though they’re not. In these photos they are small
adults because they do something that means a lot to them. The series is fine craftsmanship,
well accomplished with beautiful light. It is a sport that is often mocked, but
here it is taken serious. That is an awesome approach to a sport.”
