Since his first internationally acclaimed exploration through Tibet almost 30 years ago, Jimmy Nelson has travelled to the world’s most hidden corners to photographindigenous peoples. In 2013 he published his first book ‘Before They Pass Away’, with which hislifelong 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 ishowhe initially felt but since he published his first book, his sustained and amazing interaction withthe 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 thepeople he asked to pose for his lense. This provides him with an unending inspiration to continue his work and set up the Jimmy Nelson Foundation.
