Jeroen Toirkens


On show through 9 January

This winter, in connection with De Poolnacht in Groningen, Noorderlicht presents NomadsLife, by the documentary photographer Jeroen Toirkens (b. 1971). Since 1999 Toirkens has been following the lives of various nomadic tribes in Central Asia, Russia, Mongolia and the Arctic region. He discovered that globalisation, poverty and climate change are making it increasingly difficult for them to maintain their traditional way of life. With NomadsLife, which will appear in 2011 in book form, Toirkens creates a diverse and often poignant picture of nomadism in the 21st century.
