For the twenty-sixth edition, DDK sets foot for the first time in a long time at 30CC Leuven where we will be guests on November 23, 2022.

British-Dutch photographer Jimmy Nelson will present his new book "Between the sea & the sky. But he is not alone. Jim Huylebroek, photojournalist for The New York Times, shows us his images of the Ukrainian front. Furthermore, De Tijd journalist Rik Van Puymbroeck updates us on his photo column 'Nergens zonder weg'. Photographer Hannelore Vandenbussche shows her series 'Human Playground'. And we introduce you to a new columnist on stage for the first time.

Jimmy Nelson

Jimmy Nelson is a Dutch-British photographer who has traveled the world for more than 30 years to visit and photograph some of the last indigenous communities to visit and photograph. His work has subsequently been used to garner support and help restore a sense of pride around the indigenous way of life. What began as a naïve engagement with the people he met during work assignments, has over three decades grown into a personal project. The success of the book "Before they pass away" and the response to it have enabled and encouraged Jimmy to continue this journey.


Jim Huylebroek

Jim Huylebroek is a freelance photographer from Antwerp, but moved to Kabul, Afghanistan, where he has been based since early 2015. In the summer of 2021, he was present when the Taliban entered the Afghan capital and the last U.S. troops left. Huylebroek was part of the New York Times team that won the 2022 Pulitzer Prize for international reporting for their investigation of civilian casualties from U.S. airstrikes.
Huylebroek has been commissioned or published by The New York Times, Time Magazine, The Guardian, The Telegraph, Al Jazeera, The Washington Post, Der Spiegel, Paris Match and others. He has been a regular contributor to The New York Times from Afghanistan since 2017.
In 2022 he moved back to Belgium and just got back from Ukraine where he covered the war for 5 weeks for The New York Times.
