ABOUT THE JIMMY NELSON FOUNDATION

OUR VISION

Our world is changing. It’s an inevitable process and it’s advancing at a speed like never before. From a life spent traveling, Jimmy Nelson has experienced that his camera is more than just the perfect tool to make contact and build intimate and unique friendships. For years, his camera has proven to be invaluable in capturing cultural diversity. A diversity that is in danger.
