Standard Edition Collector's Edition


With his book Before They Pass Away, Jimmy Nelson undertook a colossal venture. Equipped with his 5 x 4 plate field camera, he went on a journey to visit 31 different and unique indigenous peoples and presents his impressions in this exquisite illustrated book.

From Ethiopia, Mongolia, and Siberia to the Maori and Himba tribes, Jimmy Nelson captures these peoples' way of life and culture before—and the title is quite literal here—they pass away from our earth.

The British photographer, who already produced impressive pictures with his wife during the 30-month long Literary Portraits of China photography project, says about his work:

"In 2009, I planned to become a guest of 31 secluded and visually unique tribes. I wanted to witness their time-honored traditions, join in their rituals, and discover how the rest of the world is threatening to change their way of life forever. Most importantly, I wanted to create an ambitious aesthetic photographic document that would stand the test of time. A body of work that would be an irreplaceable ethnographic record of a fast disappearing world."

teNeues Publishing Group is proud to add a piece of human cultural history to its program with this book. It is available in both a standard edition and a special collector’s edition.

Experience the fascinating world of the indigenous peoples of our planet with Jimmy Nelson's Before They Pass Away.

Available on teneues.com starting October 2013.
