Bonsai and photographs by Morten Albek

Morten performs Bonsai, and Shohin and Mame-bonsai demonstrations and workshops, both nationally in his native Denmark, and internationally. In 2005, his two closest bonsai-friends and he opened a bonsai school to promote bonsai further by workshops in Denmark.

Morten's non-bonsai work is as a camera operator at a regional TV-station in Denmark, which is his full time job.

In 2003, Morten established the Shohin-bonsai Europe website, www.shohin-europe.com to promote Shohin and Mame-bonsai more to the western world. This site has become a great success.

Morten Albek has written articles which have been published in Bonsai Europe; on the All Japan Mame-Bonsai Association website; for the Danish Bonsai Society, and other publications. Starting in 2006, articles focusing on Shohin-bonsai will be published in Bonsai Today and later in 2006 the book 'Shohin-Bonsai, Less is More', will be released by Stone Lantern Publishing.

Morten has also been busy in recent years, winning the Danish New Talent Competition in 2001 and the Keyaki Masters Talent Competition in Denmark in 2003.

A member of the All Japan Shohin-Bonsai Association (since 2005), the British Shohin Association (since 2006) and the Danish Bonsai Society (since 1993), Morten was also selected as the European representative to the American Shohin Bonsai Society in 2005.

Morten has traveled to Japan to meet the masters of bonsai to learn more about bonsai by discussing aesthetic views of the art and during his latest trip, Morten also produced a TV-program about bonsai.
