tribes

Everywhere: and a tale of photography and before they pass away

Before they pass away on the My Marrakesh blog

Oh...the thought of plants and animals going extinct....living in endangered areas, their numbers dwindling, the poachers encroaching. .....

ย 

But oh!  The thought of peoples and cultures vanishing....their traditions fading, their populations diminishing, their lifestyles unsupported....until one day, they are no more.

Jimmy Nelson is chasing after vanishing tribes, trying to capture their images on film with his large plate field camera. ...

It may soon be too late for us to see them ourselves.....

But at least we can know their beauty in the pages of his book, Before They Pass Away....

If you are in New York, see Jimmy Nelson's important work at the Bryce Wolkowitz Gallery, starting today until April 18.
