Mads Nissen wins World Press Photo 2014

Normally, we only post news about DMJX students, DMJX projects and life at the school, but some news are simply so big that we need to post them on our website.


Danish photographer Mads Nissen has today won World Press Photo of the year 2014 with the picture of Jon and Alex - a homosexual couple living in St. Petersborg, Russia. The picture is a part of Mads Nissen's story about the living conditions for LGBT people in Russia.
