If you like travel / gob-smacking photographs / thoughtful insights / interesting stories …or any of these – read on.
Photographer Jimmy Nelson set out to search for the world’s last indigenous cultures.
His goal – to record rapidly disappearing communities for future generations. Before They Pass Away.
As a keen photographer – much better critic than photo taker – I believe that his photos are extraordinary. His videos and TED talks are also incredible. A must see.
Jimmy provides a window into the emotional and spiritual lives of the last indigenous peoples of the world with previews of the evocative portraits and stories.
These images may be the only legacy they leave behind – be a beneficiary.
