A human being has the capacity to be their own best friend and their own worst enemy with the blink of an eye. Fortunately, primitive attitudes like these have been on the endangered list for quite a few years now and it is fair to expect that they will pass away long before any of the cultures Nelson encountered in his project.

Cover has minimal but visible scuffing, otherwise a clean and sound copy of this book; no writing, highlighting, odors, stains, tears or folds. To celebrate the launch of Between the Sea and the Sky we made a unique book stand in collaboration with Look a Book. This tribute to vibrant tribal cultures around the world is a must-have for any lover of documentary photography.

He could even add more text about his journey to get there, interviews or dialogs with some of the people, put a name to them, etc. texto algo básico, pero que sirve para situar cada cultura e invitar a descubrir más de cada una de ellas). En tenslotte, vind ik het jammer dat sommige foto's (weinig weliswaar) niet de aandacht krijgen die ze verdienen, door een slechte printkwaliteit.

His portraits poignantly capture the dignity of these tribal people and highlight the uncomplicated serenity in their extraordinary lives, customs and society, all the while documenting the vanishing harmony between man and nature. They are beautiful and evocative, but the book has a slight feel of a Victorian explorer's staged pictures of the world rather than realistic portrayals.

Die epischen Porträts des britischen Fotografen zeigen diese würdevollen Erben jahrhundertealter Traditionen in einem stolzen Geist und in all ihrer Pracht. It is not fair to those 370 million people that they are just being exhibited like a tourist attraction and object for a photographer. The extremely large format takes you further into their lives than a National Geographic image does. Nelson’s mission is built on a horrifying assumption: that these Indigenous peoples are on the brink of destruction.

Come with me and walk the fine line between pleasure and pain of love, life and friendships with a certain sense of ethereal fluidity juxtaposed with strong black. Jimmy himself combined with beautiful video material will guide you through breathtaking footage, but above all uncovers the beauty of day-to-day life from all over the world. In his landmark book Before They Pass Away Jimmy Nelson captures the customs and traditions of the Indigenous communities who have managed to preserve their heritage within our increasingly globalized world. i would have loved to get more information, now it is max 0,5 - 1 page of very high level information. by Enrico Heinemann - weitere Mitwirkende: Mark Blaisse (Text) - Porträtfotografie, Dokumentarfotografie, Farbfotografie, Gesellschaft, Fotografie, Porträt, Porträtfotografie ; Stamm ; Bildband, Fotografie, Video, Computerkunst - - handschriftlich signiert von Jimmy Nelson auf dem Titelblatt, opulenter Bildband mit zahlreichen sensiblen Farbfotos, Texte in deutscher, englischer und französischer Sprache - - Im Mittelpunkt dieses historisch bedeutsamen Bandes stehen Stammeskulturen aus aller Welt.Now based in Amsterdam, his limitless curiosity and fascination with other cultures has lead him on a journey around the world to document some of the world’s oldest surviving communities. Ik had ook liever wat meer spontane foto's gezien, een heel deel is geposeerd (wat ergens logisch is als je goed alle kledij en juwelen wilt catalogeren - maar toch). Kinda reminds me of Jared Diamond's theory of how geographical factors account to why some civilizations thrive faster and better than others. This elegant and evocative collection of photographs documents the unseen lives and traditions of over 15 million people from 35 of the world’s last indigenous tribes. Maybe 5cm smaller in height would have been fine, still big enough and it would fit in the bookshelf with other "big books".

Der Preis ist bei dem ganzen Aufwand sicherlich gerechtfertigt, aber es ist und bleibt eine stolze Summe (stolz wie die Personen auf den Portraits). This enchanting design collection submerges you deep beneath the ocean waves, dive down amongst the intoxicating layers of Adrift to discover the mischief and madness you have come to expect from BOBO1325. Auflage von 2013 (im übergroßen DINA-3-Format), mittlere Gebrauchspuren, mit dem farbigen Schutzumschlag. Nelson sells fairytale versions of happy tribes as if they're all paradisaical, better versions of modern society. Jimmy Nelson’s] words of ‘authenticity, purity, beauty,’ are hollow adoration while his romanticized images are nothing but his own reflection.

Industrialized society is trying to destroy us in the name of ‘progress’, but we will keep defending our lands and contributing to the protection of the planet. Nixiwaka Yawanawá protested against the “outrageous” exhibition of Jimmy Nelson’s work at London’s Atlas Gallery, wearing his ceremonial headdress. For this collection has a dark side, it highlights the effects of plastic and pollution within or waters.
