Day in the life: Dating in Denmark

For our day in the life assignment I photographed Lesley Peel. Peel has lived internationally but settled in Denmark in 2005 with her former husband and three children. Peel and her husband split recently and since she has become a member of the exclusive online dating website Elite Daters. However, Peel has found it difficult to connect on dates through the language barrier and struggles to make the decision to stay in Denmark and find a partner, move abroad or return to the UK with her 11-year-old daughter.

Peel stands in the doorway of her classroom where she teaches at Rygaards International School in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Peel holds her 11-year-old daughters book bag while she puts on her coat after school.

Peel washes dishes and prepares dinner in her apartment in Copenhagen, Denmark. Peel was living in a home owned by her husband's company but when they separated she moved into a smaller apartment with her children.

Peel stands alone in her kitchen in Copenhagen, Denmark.

Peel goes on a date with a man she met on the Elite Daters website.
