This historic volume showcases tribal cultures around the world. With globalization, these societies are to be prized for their distinctive lifestyles, art and traditions. They live in close harmony with nature, now a rarity in our modern era. Jimmy Nelson not only presents us with stunning images of customs and artifacts, but also offers insightful portraits of people who are the guardians of a culture that they - and we - hope will be passed on to future generations in all its glory. Nelson's large-plate field camera captures every intricate detail and fine nuance for posterity. What's more, this splendid pageantry is set against a vivid backdrop of some of the world's most pristine landscapes.

  1. Enastående
    Tord Karlsson, 8 september 2016

    En fantastisk dokumentation i bilder av några av de få naturfolk som ännu finns kvar på vår planet. Ett mästerverk. Värt varenda krona.

  2. Before they pass away
    Ludvig Bystedt, 25 december 2014

    Alldeles fantastisk bok med alldeles fantastiska bilder! Ett otroligt jobb har lagts ner för att åstadkomma detta bildverk! Inte den billigaste fotoboken jag sett men kanske den mest prisvärda.

    Otroligt fina bilder att få se hur människor från andra nästan glömda delar av världen lever och ser ut oooootroligt.

For sheer splendor, the catwalks of New York, Milan and Paris combined can barely touch the eagle hunters of Mongolia. Riding squat ponies through the mountains, these Turkic peoples wear high-domed and winged fur hats, embroidered felt boots and leggings, cloaks of reindeer hide, studded metal belts, fearsome hooded eagles perched on their arms. The fierce elegance of their clothing fully matches that of the stark landscape they inhabit; it also, and not incidentally, testifies to the irrepressible human will to beautify. That conclusion inevitably results from viewing "Before They Pass Away," the British photographer Jimmy Nelson's tombstone-size new volume (teNeues, $150) documenting vanishing tribal cultures around the world. The book results from a project taking years and is less ethnology or anthropology than a document of his romance with otherness. In his strenuous travels with an archaic studio camera, Mr. Nelson visited 35 of the world's least known and most imperiled tribal peoples -- from the Huli and Kalam tribes of New Guinea, to the Tsaatan of Mongolia and the Mursi people inhabiting the highlands of the Omo River valley in remote southern Ethiopia.
