Three Journeys

In the collections of the National Museums of World Culture there are one million photographs from different times and places. Each of them offers a certain glimpse of something chosen, there and then, and captures one person's view of the world. Three Trips is an installation shown at the first floor gallery at the Museum of World Culture. In three projections we see instants from three different expeditions, all of them connecting to the collections of the national Museums of World Culture

The images are from the Vanadis steam frigate world ocean sail, 1883-1885, Sven Hedin's discoveries in Asia, 1885-1935, and the Kamchatka expedition, 1925-1930.

These trips were made for different reasons: to map out new worlds, collect objects or experience new adventures.
