Jimmy Nelson: Humanity

The photo book "Jimmy Nelson: Humanity" is about photographer Jimmy Nelson's personal and artistic journey in search of indigenous peoples around the world


The beautiful photobook "Jimmy Nelson: Humanity" is about famed photographer Jimmy Nelson's personal and artistic journey around the world, a means of taking people on a deeper journey of reflection on their own identity as part of the universal family of people.

Jimmy Nelson's trips resemble field expeditions, with much preparation and contingencies to consider. They can take weeks, if not months. For Jimmy Nelson, travel is an essential part of his artistic process, symbolizing a determined search for what it means to be human, deep inside, from our shared origins on the African continent. During this process, he has reconnected with his own deeper self and realized that humanity is one.

In Jimmy Nelson: Humanity, the photographer passionately shares why he is obsessively searching for a form of art that can encompass what he experiences in the field, when he finds a harmonious alignment with the people, nature and light; a sense of balance that creates a symphony of experiences that analog photography, in the form of the giant 10×8 negatives, can almost express and that allows him to channel all the emotions he wants to capture visually into a single moment.
