Before They Pass Away is the title of Jimmy Nelson’s exhibition at the Kate Vass Galerie in Zurich. This is the first exhibition of the photographer in Switzerland. Rizzoli also publishes a book called Homage to humanity.
Since his first internationally acclaimed exploration through Tibet almost 30 years ago, Jimmy Nelson has traveled to the world’s most hidden corners to photograph indigenous people. In 2013 he published his first book, Before They Pass Away—which sold over 180,000 copies worldwide—fulfilling his lifelong dream to create awareness about the world’s unimaginable diversity. With his new book, HOMAGE TO HUMANITY, Nelson presents an all-immersive experience that invites you on extraordinary journeys to India, South Sudan, China, French Polynesia, Chad, Bhutan, Mongolia, Angola, Namibia, Papua New Guinea, Vanuatu, Mexico, Siberia, Peru, and Australia, capturing an artistic record of the proud and still lasting extraordinary indigenous cultures of our planet today.
