Interview with Jimmy Nelson by Utrecht Union

The Utrecht Union is a new student initiative for and by students in Utrecht, insprired by initiatives from Cambridge and Oxford. The Utrecht Union brings students in contact with eccentric humans with unique perspectives. With this, they teach students about the enormous variety in views and thinking. Something which is often underexposed within your own, trusted cirle.

To celebrate the yearly Careers Day the Utrecht Union will host an interview with the praised photographer Jimmy Nelson.
Jimmy travels the world to photographs indigenous tribes and incorporated his unique insight into the lives and cultures of these tribes in his worldwide bestsellers.
The themes career, well-being and Jimmy’s extraordinary life experiences will be asked upon during the interview.
