Two books were released in the last decade with Jimmy’s lifetime work, showcasing his photography from over the years, and when asked what he was trying to achieve, Jimmy said that the answer is always evolving. At first his work primarily concerned himself, his self discovery, and path of personal survival. Though, over time, his work led him towards content creation surrounding cultural extinction, soon becoming his most prolific work. Back in 2013, Jimmy was surprised by the positive response of the public towards his first book, “Before they pass away”, which made him question why he was doing that. The answer for this question is still today far from concrete, but he explains that he sees his work as a road to facilitate humanities saviour as a whole, not just the endangered species, by realigning and discussing how we all live, through a very specific and eccentric perspective. His work is able to do this since it shows another perspective of human life, which directs us in a modern world toward questioning our entire way of living, and our unnecessary materialistic and unfulfilling lifestyles.
By creating Before they pass away and Homage to Humanity, both of Jimmy’s books’ goal was to appreciate the consistent evolution of the cultures his work depicts, while enabling them to have access to everything that we have, in a more balanced and healthy way”. Jimmy defines the content he produces as art, not science, but rather a work of subjectivity and romance. He says that his work is about being humble and not letting one’s ego affect how they view others, “They may be half-naked and don’t have any money, but they may still be better off than we are”. We often regard the developed world as richer, though wealth quite clearly means different things to contrasting cultures.
