The Danish photographer and Project Pressure founder Klaus Thymann’s work will be displayed at the exhibition Forever Changes, a collaboration between the Nordic embassies in the UK and the gallery Street Level Photoworks in Glasgow. Thymann is supported by the Embassy of Denmark.
The gallery will exhibit contemporary photography from the Nordic countries addressing climate change, sustainability and conservation of the planet. Forever Changes is a call to action and addresses the urgent need to influence change not only for the protection of the planet but also for a better world.
The exhibition opens at the same time as the most important and urgent Climate Change Summit to date – COP26 – which takes place in Glasgow between 31 October – 12 November 2021.
In support of the exhibition, Thymann has created a public art-intervention using stunning imagery overlaid with surprising and potent messages to be displayed in the public on billboards around Glasgow during COP26.
