Torben Eskerod, born in 1960, was educated at Aalborg University (1980–86) and Aarhus School of Architecture and Fatamorgana School of Photography in Copenhagen (1988–91).

His approach to spiritual expression is further explored in the series Marselis (2012) and Can Lis (2013).
Monographs of Eskerod’s work have been published such as Ansigter/Faces (Forlaget Rhodos, 1997) in cooperation with the Danish Ministry of Culture photographic book prize, Register (Ny Carlsberg Glyptotek, 2001) and Campo Verano (Kehrer Verlag, 2008).
Several projects with his architectural photographs and portraits have appeared in the publications Statens Museum for Kunst (Arkitektens Forlag, 1998), Vita (University of California Press, 2005), The Club (Rönnells, 2008), Will to Live (Princeton University Press, 2009), Frederik VIIIs palæ (Aristo, 2010), Kunst på Borgen (Permild & Rosengreen, 2013) and Anton Rosen (Forlaget Vandkunsten, 2013).
