Returning to the eagle hunters, Freezing Mongolia

Is this what you think it is? Yes, it is! Jimmy went back to Mongolia to visit the majestic Kazakh and what an experience that was. "You are not the first one to take our picture", Ergalim said to Jimmy who first took his picture in 2011. "But you are the first one to return and show us what you made." He smiles in excitement whilst looking at himself, posing proudly with his eagle balancing on his arm. Jimmy has travelled far to Ergalim's remote home to bring back the book. He's being welcomed as family. The Kazakh hunt with their eagles on rabbits and foxes, sometimes even wolves. Their iconic appearance makes them a beloved image for photographers. "We have never been photographed before in the way Jimmy did."

Last Chance @ Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery New York

A little over a year ago Jimmy had the opportunity to exhibit at the Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery for the first time, today we can be proud of another successful opening at this gallery last month. The exhibit is closing on April 15, so don't miss your chance to visit.

Since its founding in 2002, Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery has made a major commitment to representing new media artists who are exploring the intersection of art and technology. The gallery's dedication to supporting an array of innovative practices has been the catalyst for the expansion of its program to include painting and sculpture.

As a member of the Association of International Photography Art Dealers (AIPAD), the gallery has a long history of dedication to exhibiting photographers with a strong socio-geographic mission, namely Canadian environmental photographer Edward Burtynsky and Amsterdam-based ethnographic photographer Jimmy Nelson. 


Opening Hours
Tuesday – Saturday 10.00 – 18.00

Next up: Angola

You may wonder where Jimmy is now, from extreme cold to extreme heat - Angola. Home to the second largest waterfall the Kalandula Falls, scattered historic remains of its colonial history with the Portugese, diverse population and incredible beaches and landscapes it has the potential to one of Africa’s highlights. To outsiders maybe not one of the first choices, sadly due to its past the country was more set in war then peace. To adventurous travellers like Jimmy it is perfect to dig deeper into all of the beautiful people and places that have been hidden from the world. 

The Jimmy Nelson Foundation
“A colourful world, now and in 100 years”


The Jimmy Nelson Foundation supports cultural diversity worldwide. We assist cultural project initiatives that celebrate our cultural diversity and help to sustain it into the future. Think of Tibetan music, Maori body art, Wodaabe dance and Aboriginal Australian storytelling. Jimmy Nelson projects set themselves apart from other cultural projects through their focus on the wealth of cultural diversity, especially of indigenous peoples.


You can join the celebration of a culturally diverse world and become a Friend of the foundation! #JoinJimmy

Foundation supports South African photography project 


In response to the project call “Celebrate Culture”, we received many great proposals. The Jimmy Nelson Foundation is proud to announce its support for "They came from the water while the world watched". In this photography and storytelling project, the young photographer Giya Makondo-Wills portrays her relatives in the rural South-African province of Limpopo. Here she traces Ancestral beliefs within everyday Christian culture, exploring how traditional cultures and beliefs are alive within the world we know today. The results of the project will be exhibited in South Africa and Great Britain.

About the artist we are supporting:

Giya Makondo-Wills (1994) is a British-South African documentary photographer who looks at race, identity and colonialism. The young artist states that for her, this project is part of a constant cultural exchange she experiences in her personal life: “I have been brought up to recognise the equal importance of both cultures that I am part of and this essential awareness informs all my work.”

Absolute Art Gallery in Knokke, Belgium

Absolute Art Gallery is situated in Knokke, a beautiful village right next to Belgium's most pristine beach. It is definitely worth paying this area a visit and while you're there soaking up the sun, this wonderful gallery will exhibit Jimmy's work from April 30. Thank you so much for inviting us again AAG!

Opening Hours
Thursday - Monday 11:00 - 18:30
