For the last 31 years, photojournalist and photographer Jimmy Nelson has travelled across countries taking portraits of tribal and indigenous people. With the sound purpose of raising awareness about the world’s indigenous cultures, he creates aesthetic visual imagery as a reminder of the drastic homogenising forces of a globalising world. Nelson’s photographs have taken the world by storm, with exhibitions held in major cities like London, New York, Paris and Shanghai.
In tandem with this talk and Q&A session by Nelson, a workshop and a month-long exhibition of his photos will be held at Bangunan UAB.
"This exquisitely photographed showcase for world tribal culture is not only a joy to look at, but also an important historical record."
Jimmy Nelson’s book Before They Pass Away (2013), is the product of a five-year journey across Europe, Asia, Africa, South America and the South Pacific during which he visited 35 indigenous communities.
In tandem with the exhibition, Nelson will conduct a workshop on the 28th of July and present a talk on the 30th of July.
