“Humanity”, Jimmy Nelson’s first solo exhibition in Italy, opens in Milan

The British photographer, who was first featured by National Geographic at the age of 17, has spent his life traveling to tell the story of indigenous peoples increasingly threatened by globalization.

In Milan, from today until 21 January, you can visit at Palazzo Reale “Humanity”, the first Italian solo exhibition of Jimmy Nelson, one of the most important photographers in the world. The exhibition – organized in collaboration with the Jimmy Nelson Foundation and curated by Nicolas Ballario and Federica Crivellaro – is a journey through 65 large photographs, chosen among the most famous of Nelson’s career, representing some of the most endangered indigenous cultures.

“As a photographer, my journey revolves around the subject of my artwork: indigenous peoples. Rooted in a deep sense of empathy, my work aims to connect with people from different cultures and inspire others to embrace the beauty of humanity, recognizing that we are all one people,” Nelson said.

Born in England in 1967, Jimmy Nelson has dedicated his life to traveling around the world to collect, show, and tell the stories of these populations, traditional customs, and traditions that have been preserved despite globalization, and how they perceive the world.
