What is Nowhere Diary?

Nowhere Diary is a photography community founded and curated by me — Danish photographer Kim Høltermand.

Since 2018, I have curated Nowhere Diary and promoted the work of photographers, telling their stories and featuring their books on photography.

I wanted to create a unique platform for photography and for photographers, a place to share the many stories and memories found in photographs, a place to inspire others and a place to help the growth and development of photographers.

By promoting and sharing the work of photographers through Nowhere Diary, hopefully I am helping more people learn and discover photography in all its aspects — from everyday documenting to exhibitions and photo book publishing.

Who is Kim Høltermand?

I have been working as a photographer since 2008, where I bought my first camera and began my journey into the amazing world of photography, focusing mainly on architecture.

Around the same time I also began working as an expert in fingerprints in the Crime Scene Unit of the Danish National Police, where I worked for 9 years.

During those years I felt like a modern day Batman. Fighting crime at day and driving around, photographing at night — working every minute of my spare time on learning to master my camera and the art of photography.

Working at the intersection of architecture, interior and documentation, I have worked with some of the world’s most iconic brands including Apple, Instagram Design, Adidas and more. My work has also been featured in a long list of international magazines, books and publications including Wallpaper*, T: The NYTimes Style Magazine, AD Germany, Forbes Japan and more.
