Photographic exhibition Tomorrows and Yesterdays: Mads Nissen Meets Europe’s First Photographers is opening on 13 May 2015 and running till 2 August 2015 at the premises of Arbejdeermuseet, one of the founding members of PHOTOCONSORTIUM. Here, award-winning (World Press Photo of the Year 2014) Danish photographer Mads Nissen will juxtapose the original selection of around 100 early photographs from the All Our Yesterdays show (digitised and printed on canvas in high quality and with state-of-the art techniques during the EU project Europeana Photography) with his own vision and reflections.
In 50 photo commentaries, Nissen will echo the impressions left by his encounter with Europe’s first photographers, which has triggered a heightened sense of the determination of the men/women behind the camera to document the present and their courage to reflect upon tomorrow.

With this extraordinary stop-over, the travelling exhibition All Our Yesterdays proves to be one of the most important photographic events in the year: launched in Pisa in Spring 2014, a second, expanded version of the expo was presented in Heverlee/Leuven in February-March 2015. This third edition in Copenhagen, featuring the cooperation with Mads Nissen and special lessons on art and history organised by the hosting Museum, gives a new spin to a proven concept.
