'Orlando' at Betty Nansen - taking photos when the stage is all mirrors

Natascha Rydvald has taken press photos for the play 'Orlando' staged at the Betty Nansen Theatre in Copenhagen. The play is based on the Virginia Wolf classic from 1928.

On the stage there is a large mirror, and as a photographer you don't want to be in the photo yourself.

"It was a very beautiful play to work with," Natascha Rydvald says.

"We had great challenges with reflections," she explains.

But how she managed to take series of great theatre photos without being in the photo herself, she will not reveal. There is no explanation why she is so secretive about the solution, but the promises to explain it at her workshops.

'Orlando' was playing in September and October 2018.
