Before they pass away
Today, thousands of cultures and traditions, more or less known, make our world an earth of wealth. But all wealths are fragile and must be preserved.
In 2009, Jimmy Nelson, a famous English photographer, decided to launch into an unprecedented ethnological project: “Before they pass away”
After travelling around of the world, he suddenly had the idea to make a book wherein we can find images of 29 tribes of four corners of the world. This is not just a photo report but a memory book which can offer to the future generations a look at our past.
