Maasai1

The published book ‘Before They Pass Away’ is full of captivating epic portraits of some  of the last surviving tribes on earth. The book is the landmark project of Jimmy Nelson. 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.
