VIEWING ROOM #5 - JIMMY NELSON

‘Planet Earth is at risk of losing the cultural identities of the many of the world’s most unique indigenous people.’

— Jimmy Nelson

‘Hommage to Humanity’ is an all-immersive experience that invites you on a journey. The 2019 WEBBY Award winning mobile app makes it possible to scan every photograph and bring the images to life - with behind the scenes films, personal storytelling, and interviews.

As Fotografiska and Jimmy Nelson share values and perspectives on human and cultural diversity, Hommage to Humanity was the main inaugural exhibition at Fotografiska Tallinn in June 2019. Next stop is Fotografiska Stockholm in September 2019.

VIEWING ROOM #4 - VEE SPEERS

After having placed her works in numerous collections in Scandinavia over the years, we are thrilled to officially announce our collaboration with the Australian born, Paris based artist Vee Speers.

Vee Speers fell in love with photography at an early age, assisting her father in the darkroom, mesmerised by seeing his portraits appear like magic. Since the early ninties, she has been engaging viewers around the world with the dramatic tension of her storytelling through portraiture.

VIEWING ROOM #1 - JEFF COWEN

Jeff Cowen uses analogue photography and makes his prints in his customized darkroom. Cowens study of painting and life drawing has had a great impact on his concept of photography. The analogue image taken by the camera marks only the starting point of the artistic reflection of the motif. His chief concern is not a return to the photographic past, but rather to explore and expand the limits of the medium from a present-day perspective.
