About Klaus Thymann

Danish born Klaus Thymann is a multi award winning photographer, filmmaker and creative director. Awards include Kodak Gold Award (1996), Sony World Photography Award (2013). He regularly contributes to the BBC, New York Times and Wired, alongside the delivery of large commercial projects for clients including Nike and Johnnie Walker.

Throughout his practice Thymann reveals a deeply held interest in the act of exploring – both in a physical sense and in a more conceptual manner, one of seeking out new practices and experimenting with new techniques and approaches. His drive to explore has seen him document extreme environments around the world. He regularly ice and cave diving and has conducted the only scuba dive of the world’s clearest lake in New Zealand. He has documented tourism in Iraq, photographed parkour in Gaza and explored the glaciers of Uganda and Congo via new trekking routes.

In 2008 Thymann set up Project Pressure, a charity that documents glacial recession around the world in order to raise awareness of issues surrounding climate change. Through this he has forged collaborations with NASA, the World Glacier Monitoring Service and Oxford University

The Guardian, National Geographic, Vice, Creative Review, CNN and NPR amongst others have featured his work. Thymann has guest lectured at Oxford University, The Photographers' Gallery and Central St. Martins College of Art and Design.
