This tribute to vibrant tribal cultures around the world is a must-have for any lover of documentary photography.

Will resonate with readers on aesthetic, intellectual, and emotional levels and be a keepsake for future generations.

This historic volume showcases tribal cultures around the world. With globalization, these societies are to be prized for their distinctive lifestyles, art and traditions. They live in close harmony with nature, now a rarity in our modern era.

Jimmy Nelson not only presents us with stunning images of customs and artifacts, but also offers insightful portraits of people who are the guardians of a culture that they and we hope will be passed on to future generations in all its glory.

Nelson’s large-plate field camera captures every intricate detail and fine nuance for posterity. What’s more, this splendid pageantry is set against a vivid backdrop of some of the world’s most pristine landscapes.

Jimmy Nelson

Since his first internationally acclaimed exploration through Tibet almost 30 years ago, Jimmy Nelson (born in Kent, England, 1967) has travelled to the world’s most hidden corners to photograph indigenous peoples. In 2013 he published his first book Before They Pass Away, with which his lifelong dream, to create awareness about the world’s unimaginable diversity, became reality. The name chosen for this project had roused attention as it may give the impression that he pessimistically saw the sealed fate of those peoples he had come to meet.

And maybe this is how he initially felt. But since he published his first book, his sustained and amazing interaction with the most diverse range of peoples have made him backtrack on this view. Where there are challenges, there are solutions. He has come to appreciate the pride, strength, vigour, honour and resilience of the people he asked to pose for his lens.

This provides him with an unending inspiration to continue his work and set up the Jimmy Nelson Foundation.
