Adventures in Photography and Life

World-renowned photographer Kim Westerskov presents a photographic adventure of his life, which takes us on a breath-taking journey of the oceans, their inhabitants and beyond.

Kim will explore the importance of images in documenting our own lives while also exploring the ‘interesting’ relationship photography has always had with ‘the truth’.

He will present a selection of his finest work from a long and adventurous career, including his time swimming with whales and sharks in the tropics, photographing 'The Perfect Storm' and diving under the sea ice in Antarctica.
