Have you ever felt the urge to join Jimmy Nelson? Are you passionate about indigenous cultures and photography, travel, adventure? Then, we are looking for you.
The Jimmy Nelson Foundation is creating teams and projects that will be documenting the world’s last indigenous cultures from their own personal perspective. For this, we are looking for young, curious, creative, talented individuals from around the world.
These teams will master the art of film, photography and storytelling and share it with the planet on an unique digital platform.
The journey of ‘Circle of Cultural Connection’ is a collection of small projects, which consist of cultural festivals, celebrations and gatherings.
Our mission is to record the pride that lies beneath these diverse peoples which will bring us back together and form a basis of mutual respect, and understanding for all humanity.
