Streets of the World

In 2009, Dutch photojournalist Jeroen Swolfs set out to visit and photograph street life in every country in the world. Streets of the World is the result of this impressive journey: a photography project that not only distinguishes itself in scale, but also by the positive vision of the photographer and his eye for people. The idea of portraying 195 countries through 195 street photos, displayed next to each other, is to show a positive image of the world in which we live. One that is different to harsh image we have got used to. But just as real. 

Special exhibition 

The brewing of Carlsberg beer began more than 100 years ago in Copenhagen, and today you can drink Carlsberg all over the world. That is why we have filled Carl Jacobsen's brewery with Dutch photographer, Jeroen Swolf's, fascinating photos of street life in cities around the globe. This captivating photo exhibition about work, friendship, love and climate change will take place in The Brewhouse, a stunning industrial cathedral, situated next to the Elephant Gate from 1901, which is usually not open to the public. This is the perfect setting for your journey through 195 cities.

Tickets are available at the entrance, price DKK 50 per person. Payment only by card.
