This app uses the latest technology, which can be quite demanding on your device. Therefore, it does not function properly on iPhones 6 or lower. See below for the entire list of compatible devices.

With this Webby Award winning app, developed by Fonk, you will be able to scan every Jimmy Nelson photograph within all Jimmy Nelson books, exhibitions, Cult-ED, media and internet. Scanning an image will bring the picture alive, enabling you to step into the world behind the image. Jimmy himself combined with beautiful video material will guide you through breathtaking behind the scenes footage, but above all uncovers the beauty of day-to-day life from all over the world. Go even deeper into Jimmy Nelson’s photographs with astonishing material that will show you, despite the differences in the way we look, talk and live, we all crave the same thing: a sense of belonging and a sense of being loved.

Homage to Humanity - Virtual Reality
The book Homage to Humanity has an extra feature: a Virtual Reality gallery. Scanning one third of a chapter will reward you with access to the Virtual Gallery where you can watch extraordinary 360 film. VR Goggles are provided with the book, but it is also possible to watch without the VR Goggles.

Since 2010 Jimmy has been traveling the world to photograph Indigenous cultures and communities in all the far corners of the world. The people he portrayed show us in many diverse ways what it truly means to be human. Their cultures and traditions often reach centuries, even millennia into the past. Driven by his unique symbiosis of passion, creativity and individual determination Jimmy holds a mirror to us humans, as we find living in a vulnerable junction of time. A time where rapid development, material affluence and new technologies distract us from some of the most profound and timeless truths about human nature.

Join Jimmy on his journey with the Jimmy Nelson app to meet the most iconic Indigenous cultures.
