Mads Nissen gave a two hour long and extremely inspiring talk at DMJX, yesterday evening. During his talk, Mads Nissen not only showed his work, but he also shared his thoughts on photography and gave examples on how he works in the field. He answered many questions from the audience and thereby it became a very honest and insightful dialogue.

The talk, made in co-operation with Fotografisk Salon, Aarhus, was followed by almost 50 people in the auditorium at DMJX and it was live-streamed to another 40 people.
