LUNDBECK

LUNDBECK

Permanent exhibition at Lundbeck's worldwide headquarters in Copenhagen, Denmark.

The global burden of brain disease is immense. Hundreds of millions of people in the world suffer from brain diseases. Unfortunately, despite public awareness and therapeutic progress, it is still surrounded with a lot of stigma. We are a long way off from fully understanding these diseases, hence a simple cure is not possible.

Jens Honore was asked by Lundbeck Pharmaceutical to travel the world to photograph people with brain diseases. The photographs show us brain disease is not limited to any particular person or culture. It is indeed a worldwide disease and we need to treat people suffering from it with dignity and respect.

This is an ongoing collaboration for Jens Honore and Lundbeck. He continues to travel the world today meeting and photographing these subjects simultaneously portraying them in a very strong and positive light as well as continuing to create a better awareness for brain disease.
