Biography

Op zeventienjarige leeftijd reisde Jimmy Nelson naar Tibet. Hier begon hij zijn zoektocht naar verbinding met mensen, maar vooral met zichzelf. Mensen die zijn pad kruiste documenteerde hij voor een ultieme ontmoeting. Sindsdien reist hij heel de wereld over om verschillende culturen vast te leggen. Voor Jimmy is cultuur een expressie van wat het betekent om mens te zijn; het is een verwoording van wat belangrijk voor ons is.

Reviews:

"We asked for a presentation and received a unique performance. Jimmy is just full of energy that brought all of the 900 marketers and advertising creators to silence. The story is so unique and original that it captivated everyone from the first to the last moment. It was the highlight of our evening. While he is an internationally known photographer and speaker, he remains modest, accessible and relativistic about his own achievements and therefore such a nice person." - Paul Geraeds, Chairman SAN (Stichting Adverteerdersjury Nederland)
