HOMAGE TO HUMANITY
COFFEE-TABLE BOOK, UNSIGNED
Jimmy Nelson devotes his life to portray Indigenous cultures across the world before their cultures and crucial knowledge are lost forever. Within Homage to Humanity Jimmy visits over 25 communities and returns to three communities featured in his first book Before They Pass Away. He works with attention to detail, setting the stage with meticulous care. It is all about perfection - a measured balance of shapes, colours, and, most of all, light. Jimmy only uses natural light, which demands a lot of time. It means that he can be working on one image for several hours, or days, before he reaches what he's after - the magic, enchanting atmosphere that the right light brings. Every image in the book has a story from the stunning Sarchop in the Himalayas of Bhutan, to the icy Tundra in the north of Siberia, home to the unyielding Dolgan reindeer-herders. With the award-winning Jimmy Nelson App, you will be able to scan the images in the book and watch over 500 videos about the people, Jimmy’s experiences and much more. Be transported to the extraordinary world of Jimmy's travels through the VR gallery in the app, using the VR goggles which are provided with the book.
Jimmy about the book and the Jimmy Nelson App:
‘I’ve come across some of the most spectacular and remote places on the planet, where still today some of the most iconic Indigenous cultures live. With the app, each image will come alive. You will go on a journey. You will go to places. You will meet people. You will feel things and I really believe you will begin to understand what I am trying to say and do. I want to show you, and I want you to see these people and understand how important they are for you and me.’
