Photographing The World’s Remotest Tribes Before They Pass Away
Watch this early cut of a potential series about Jimmy Nelson now. Getting past the overly-dramatic-action-movie intro, this is a show you will want to watch. “Before They Pass Away” follows Nelson around the world on his journeys to photograph indigenous tribes before they go extinct. In the first episode, Nelson and his team travel to the Vanuatu Islands where they photograph five different tribes that live on the 83-island chain.
The portraits (taken with a 4×5) are nothing short of stunning. Many of them can be seen here. The book Before They Pass Away will undoubtedly end up in my collection. Don’t miss out on it being in yours.
