Axel - The Netherlands

NL-ZEE-AXE-D05 - Exclusively selected Fine art print

Marjan, Carlien, Ineke & Sjaco | Axel, Zeeland | the Netherlands, 2021

 

Their distinctive traditional outfits are some of the most striking in the Netherlands. This is the result of Axel’s centuries-long isolation .The folds in the traditional costumes women in Axel wear are magnificent, pointing up like wings, or like tail fins on a 1950s American car. The style originally began with small pleats in the cloth around the shoulders but grew higher over time as women were keen to outdo their neighbours and used packing paper to create ever more ingenious constructions.

Jimmy Nelson Foundation

With your purchase you support Indigenous communities taking their heritage into the future

With its projects, the Jimmy Nelson Foundation (JNF) is completing the circle Jimmy has started. As cultures are rapidly changing through time, and the world’s cultural diversity is at risk, now is the moment to act. The JNF supports Indigenous communities in preserving and passing on their traditional heritage and knowledge by investing in reciprocity and educational projects.

When you look at people- whether they are the Huli from Papua New Guinea, the Mursi from Ethiopia or even oneself- look beyond and do not judge. Often the truth is far different from what the eye beholds.
