4 Years with Jimmy Nelson
An artist with a unique art project, entitled »Before They Pass Away«, that is attracting attention around the world. Over the course of four years, he travelled through more than 40 countries with his historic plate camera, portraying the last remaining indigenous peoples. The resulting work is an extraordinary testament to their cultures. From the fascinating painted faces of the Huli Wigmen on Papua New Guinea, to the exoticism of the Karo tribe in Ethiopia and the captivating scenes of the Himba people in Namibia. These are breathtaking photographs (simply click above), the likes of which you have never seen before. »Before They Pass Away« was produced as an impressive photo book of the same name in 2013. It was awarded the Goldener Deutscher Fotobuchpreis 2014 and has already sold 70.000 copies. In the second half of 2015, his works will go on a tour organised by Crossover of major museums around the world.
Photo Artist Armin Morbach
With position instead of pose and a reduced and elegant composition that continuously toys with the subconscious, Armin Morbach’s photos are attracting a growing international audience. His conceptual aesthetic, the way in which he plays with exaggeration and leaves nothing to chance, both surprises and provokes. Driven by a desire to continue developing his artistic expression and to perfect his visions in presentation – his visual language – five years ago he took the next logical step and picked up a camera. Today, he can already boast an impressive portfolio.Accepted into F.C. Gundlach’s photographic collection in 2011 and also included in Gundlach’s curated exhibitions – at the Multimedia Art Museum in Moscow and the Kunsthalle in Vienna – Morbach and his work are now part of the NRW Forum’s “State of the art photography” exhibition and are represented at the “En compagnie de Guy Bourdin” retrospective at the Deichtorhallen in Hamburg.

book of photographs “WOUNDED”
“Wounded: The Legacy of War” contains impressive portraits of young British soldiers who have suffered life-changing injury in Iraq and Afghanistan or during training. Bryan Adams points the lens of his camera on their scars, mutilated limbs and disfigurement. This directness challenges the viewer. At the same time, the images reveal the strength of character of the victims who have lost none of their dignity and continue their lives with great courage. The photographs depict young people who were sent to war and came back to a life they had never imagined. The photographs are accompanied by interviews in which the young victims tell their stories.
