A Question of Honour

Made in collaboration with Mikkel Thuesen (text) and Laura Bisgaard Krogh (photo)


On a deserted road in Jutland, Denmark is a house with an unknown address. The authorities call the residence a “Safehouse”, even though it most of all looks like an ordinary home.


It is a secure residence with surveillance cameras and tinted windows in the kitchen that faces the court. All with the purpose to protect a group of teenage girls, who have been living in the shadow of their family, who exposed them to threats, violence and suppression.


The girls are placed here because of honour-related conflicts. They did not know that concept, before they fled their families and moved into Safehouse Jylland. But they do know how it feels.
