Between 2010 and 2014, the British photographer Jimmy Nelson has traveled the world to meet over thirty endangered ethnicities. Born in 2010 in Papua New Guinea, the “Before they pass away” project brings together pictures of tribes chosen for their geographical remoteness, beauty and the ignorance of their ancestral folklore. Jimmy Nelson thus left with an old 4×5 view camera across the globe for four years to undertake a non-exhaustive inventory of the human and world cultural heritage. He brought back images of an incredible aesthetic for these tribes to not fall into oblivion.
Until the 28th of November. B.D. www.a-galerie.fr
