Himba - Nmibia

XXXI-67 - Exclusively selected Fine art print

Himba | Hartmann Valley, Cafema | Namibia, 2015

 

The characteristic ‘look’ of the Himba comes from intricate hairstyles, the use of red ochre, traditional clothing, and personal adornments in the form of jewellery. Although nowadays some of this is purely decorative, traditionally every detail has symbolism and meaning, representing different ranks in society. The number of rings can signify a quantity of family, possessions, class or background. Himba use hairstyles to display their status and position within the community. Married women wear a small crown made of goat skin on their heads.

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.
