Jimmy Nelson: Homage to Humanity
Photographer Jimmy Nelson has traveled the world with his camera, visiting some of its most remote and ancient cultures: the resulting images will uplift us individually, unite us spiritually and celebrate our diversity yet common humanity.
The new global language is not Chinese, English or Spanish. Jimmy Nelson believes it is the visual language of photography. His travels to visit native peoples within small remote communities have become addictive. The bright, colourful, ecstatic feeling that comes through in the resulting photographs is in sharp contrast to a world that sometimes feels emotionally beige.
We all come from the same source and together we are going through an amazing period of cultural evolution. Peoples with unique cultural identities need to be truly and effectively respected, cherished and supported, for them and for all of us If we are to do so we will all need some of the humility, vulnerability, kindness, generosity and good humour that comes through in these arresting images.
