Sublime volume of once in a lifetime photographs
on 28 September 2013
I read about Jimmy Nelson on the Telegraph website. His new volume of images being released in a book called ' Before they Pass Away' caught my attention. Travel and Portraiture is my passion in photography and Jimmy nelson is one of the best. Bargain price aside, this is an absolute treat. If you love high level wonderful portrait photography, then buy it. If you know someone who appreciates the same - buy it. If you are interested in what our kids may not see in 20 years time, buy it, show it to them in 20 years when they will not be able to go to Kenya and see real tribes living their lives. Become immersed in photographs thats are so sublime, you feel you could reach out and touch the subject. In a lot of ways, this book is so sad. Beautiful, innocent tribes, people, families, children and cultures are being washed away right in front of us. Jimmy has caught our attention with this and not only has the stunning images, but also includes a description of them and a section about teach tribe's history. The book is epic - it's the only word for it. A masterpiece of wondrous photography and detail. Show everyone, treasure it and do something to help raise awareness of the plight of these spectacular people.
