JOIN THE DISCUSSION
Jimmy Nelson has spent a lifetime documenting indigenous people all over the world - and now in a world in an identity crisis, could his work be more relevant than ever. We humans have never been more disconnected from our roots and our own humanity before. Jimmy believes that indigenous people play a crucial role in how we look at ourselves and who we want to become as human beings.
That’s why he invites you to join this global discussion on cultural identity!
"I take pictures. I make images. Unlike film, which inundates you with movement and sound, defining the ongoing moment, a photograph just sits there quietly while you decide what it is saying. Yes, I am trying to convey something with my photographs, but I am certainly not hoping to tell you what to think. You will, of course, interpret the images in Homage to Humanity in whatever way suits you. What I am hoping for is an open narrative. I strongly believe that artists must always be part of the conversation. We don’t exert tangible power, but we can reflect, ask questions and share ideas." - Jimmy Nelson
