In his landmark project Before They Pass Away Jimmy Nelson captures the lives and traditions of the last surviving tribes who have managed to preserve their traditional ways and customs within our increasingly globalized world. The British photographer’s epic portraits present these dignified inheritors of noble and age-old traditions in a proud spirit and in all their glory—a unique visual experience. This exquisitely photographed showcase for world tribal culture is not only a joy to look at, but also an important historical record. This book reveals the wide variety of human experiences and cultural expressions across the ages— and we’re delighted to have it among our fall offerings.
COLLECTORS EDITION XXL is a limited edition of 500 handsigned and numbered copies offered in a sumptuous clamshell box (460 x 630 mm), showcased on a custom-made transparent book holder and containing three autographed art prints of tribesmen.
