Jimmy Nelson is a professional photographer who first gained international acclaim when he published his unique visual diary of his travels in Tibet. He has since delved into the world of commercial advertising and photography. His most recent success came on the heels of his series entitled “Before They Pass Away", a photographic documentary of 31 secluded and visually unique tribes located in some of the most isolated parts of the world. He said: “The purity of humanity exists. It is there in the mountains, the ice fields, the jungle, along the rivers and in the valleys.There is a pure beauty in their goals and family ties, their belief in gods and nature, and their will to do the right thing in order to be taken care of when their time comes."
I love my dogs, reading books, and taking great pictures with my battered but still functional digital camera. Taking great pictures with a high end camera is almost too easy, producing fantastic images with an outdated one is an accomplishment by itself.
