Prachtig om al deze verschillende en langzaam verdwijnende culturen te zien. Een feest voor het oog.
This is a small format edition of the global bestseller that 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. English/German/French edition.
Jimmy Nelson (born Sevenoaks, Kent, 1967) started working as a photographer in 1987. From 1997 onwards he began to accumulate images of remote and unique cultures photographed with a traditional 50-year-old 10 x 8 plate camera. Many awards followed. When he started to exhibit and sell these images successfully and internationally, this created the subsequent momentum and enthusiasm for the initiation of this project: Before they Pass Away.
