The Stockholm-based photography museum Fotografiska will be opening in Tallinn on 20 June - and we are thrilled to announce that Jimmy's work will be the opening exhibition!
The exhibition Homage to Humanity is an all-immersive experience that invites you on a journey through Jimmy's eyes. Next, to the iconic photography, this exhibition is accompanied by the 2019 WEBBY Award-winning mobile application that makes it possible for you to scan every photograph of the exhibition and enables us to bring the images to life - with intimate behind the scenes films, personal storytelling, and interviews. This allows people from all generations and cultures to see the making of the work and to better understand the story behind it.
Homage to Humanity is a monumental exhibition, including almost a hundred hand-framed images. "It's a wow-effect considering that Nelson has a big team that contributes to creating the photos with the author himself," comments Rain Tamm, the co-founder of Fotografiska Tallinn, and adds, "we are honoured that his exhibitions' world premiere will be here in Tallinn from where the next stops are Fotografiska Stockholm and Fotografiska New York."
The exhibition will open in Fotografiska Tallinn from June 20 until September 8.
