Jimmy Nelson was born in Sevenoaks, Kent in 1967. He is currently based in Amsterdam, while his work takes him all over the globe. Nelson spent five years travelling across Europe, Asia, Africa and the South Pacific visiting 35 indigenous tribes between 2010 and 2013 before publishing the book Before They Pass Away
which has become an international success.
Since the beginning of 2016, Jimmy has been on 14 new journeys for his new book Homage to Humanity. For this second book, Jimmy visited another unique
34 indigenous cultures around the globe.
From the Northern reaches of Siberia with the Khanys reindeer herders to the deep jungles of the Papua New Guinea with the Kaluli. From the Himalayas with the Sharchop in Bhutan to the last hidden outposts of Africa with the Mundari in isolated South Sudan.
Nelson’s work seeks to provoke a discussion and dialogue around the longevity of these rural communities, with many facing the affects of climate change,
global industrial expansion and conflicts.
Jimmy Nelson´s works is presented by museums and galleries worldwide, such as Fotografiska in Stockholm, Camerawork in Berlin, and Sotheby’s in London, and are being collected by corporate and private collections.
