The Traveling Storyteller: Jimmy Nelson

A British photojournalist and photographer who uses his camera and compassion to capture and compile the stories of endangered cultures in beautiful Jimmy Nelson books.

A beginning of passion: Tibet and beyond
It all began in 1987, when Jimmy Nelson first picked up the camera after a remarkable journey on foot through Tibet. A journey that not only led his feet over trails, but also opened his heart and vision to the wonders of photography. His lenses captured not only images but also emotions, creating a visual diary that revealed the complexities of a previously hidden world.

Before They Pass Away
In 2009, Jimmy Nelson set in motion his most ambitious project: Before They Pass Away. Three years of encounters, journeys and moments of shared humanity. Europe, Asia, Africa, South America and the South Pacific became his canvas, and indigenous communities were his protagonists. With a vintage 4×5 camera, he captured more than 35 groups, cherished in the timeless pixels of analog.

A monograph of significance
From photographs to stories, the project found a home in his debut monograph, a coffee-table-sized book of the same name.
