Jimmy Nelson

Jimmy Nelson (born Sevenoaks, Kent, 1967) started working as a photographer in 1987. From 1997 onwards he began to accumulate images of remote and unique cultures photographed with a traditional 50-year-old 10 x 8 plate camera. Many awards followed. When he started to exhibit and sell these images successfully and internationally, this created the subsequent momentum and enthusiasm for the initiation of this project: Before they Pass Away.
