Jimmy Nelson

22. November 2017 | 10:00 - 20:00

17/11/22 – 18/3/4 (See all)


Jimmy Nelson (UK, 1967) started working as a photographer in 1987. Having spent 10 years at a Jesuit boarding school in the North of England, he set off on his own to traverse the length of Tibet on foot (1985). The journey lasted a year and upon his return his unique visual diary, featuring revealing images of a previously inaccessible Tibet, was published to wide international acclaim.

In the last seven years Jimmy Nelson visited 61 indigenous cultures and traveled to 27 unique places around the globe. From the Northern reaches of Siberia with the Khanys reindeer herders, to the deep jungles of the Amazon with the Pataxo. From the Himalayas with the Laylap in Bhutan to the last hidden outposts of Africa with the Mundari in isolated South Sudan.

For the first time, MUCA shows new images of his recent travels and “best of ” his latest journeys.

Tickets are available at MUCA at 7,50€ (regular) / 5,00€ (concession)
