Juhan Kuusi Dokfoto Keskus – Doc at its finest

Tallinn recently welcomed the opening of our very own branch of Fotografiska gallery — absolutely worth a visit. But there is another photography center right nearby – Juhan Kuusi Dokfoto Keskus. Juhan Kuus Documentary Photo Centre is a small gallery displaying, you guessed it, documentary photography.

Juhan Kuus is a world-renowned documentary photographer of Estonian origin who lived and worked in South Africa. Juhan Kuus Documentary Photo Centre usually focuses on one exhibition at a time, displaying the works of one doc-photographer. And if the stars align, you can even attend one of the Centre’s artist talk events – do check their homepage and FB, which are diligently updated.

I was lucky to visit Juhan Kuus’ exhibition in Adamson-Eric Museum in Tallinn’s Old Town in 2016, and have been wanting to nudge all my people to see doc-photography exhibitions ever since. In case you are more than an enthusiastic viewer and would actually like to do some work in a darkroom – the Centre provides this service, too.

After the gallery visit, why not have a drink at the Centre’s neighboring Pudel bar to discuss what you saw in the gallery and get inspired to take some photos of your own.
