Jimmy Nelson is a photographer who embarked on a journey unlike any other.
He set out to document as many isolated civilizations as he could, before the pressures of the developed world start to severely impact their culture, traditions and way of life. He was, in a manner of speaking, their ‘visual ghostwriter’, telling their story through his beautiful photography and thereby ensuring their culture was preserved for future generations to discover and see for themselves.
Over 3 years and thousands of air miles, he documented 30 unique and rarely seen tribes and their cultures for his magnificent photographic series ‘Before They Pass Away‘. His incredible journey took him to Ethiopia, Papua New Guinea, Kenya, Tanazania, New Zealand, Mongolia, Siberia, Nepal, China,Vanuatu, Argentina, Ecuador, Namibia, India, Chukotka and Indonesia - each with their own perils, risks and unmistakable highlights.
