Jimmy’s ambition and mission is to make an iconic document of indigenous cultures and to leave a visual heritage for present and future generations. He wants to create an aesthetic photographic and film document that will stand the test of time. His work will be a catalyst for further discussion as to the authenticity and beauty of these fragile disappearing cultures.

In this video Jimmy shares some of his most intimate and fascinating life lessons from the people he’s learned along the way. The stories & lessons featured in this video are Humour, Knowledge, Vulnerability, Pride, Judgment, Respect and Reflection.
