In some cultures, it is believed that a photo can steal the soul, but if that picture is taken by Jimmy Nelson
, it will certainly keep that spirit in a safe place.
In the midst of lost landscapes, Jimmy Nelson discovered unique tribes that still maintain their daily rituals and ancient traditions, despite the constant threats of extinction, and immortalized them "Before They Pass Away" in unique portraits with a 4x5 camera. By choosing a large negative, Jimmy Nelson was able to capture extremely detailed images that perpetuate the unique cultural creativity of these tribes and also enhance the emotional value of these memories, pictures of the last indigenous people in the world.
Jimmy Nelson's collection of images is an extraordinary family photo album for the world, a precious ethnographic testimony to see and remember just how spiritual and how connected to nature we once were.
