Jimmy Nelson is as much a director and scenographer as he is a photographer. In his images, he works with attention to detail, setting the stage with meticulous care. It is all about perfection - a measured balance of shapes, colours, and, most of all, light. Natural light, the only kind he uses, demands a lot of time. It means that he can be working on one image for several hours, or days, before he reaches what he's after – the magic, enchanting atmosphere that the right light brings.

The exhibition contains images going back almost 20 years. Over time you can observe a refinement of the original concept, but the idea remains the same.

"It's important to document this before it disappears. Because when it disappears, we lose something too: we lose our origin, where we're coming from." Jimmy Nelson
