The latest, eagerly awaited photographs by Jimmy Nelson celebrating the strength and beauty of remote indigenous cultures will be presented at Atlas Gallery in London this month, in advance of the publication in October of his new book, Jimmy Nelson: Homage to Humanity. And, for the first time, visitors will be able to meet some of Nelson’s subjects through his innovative and immersive ‘360’ films.
In both the exhibition and the book, Jimmy Nelson: Homage to Humanity, the British-born photographer pays tribute to thirty-four communities he encountered while travelling across five continents, from the Sharchop in the Himalayan kingdom of Bhutan to the Mundari in South Sudan. The exhibition at Atlas Gallery will feature magnificent archival pigment prints. An interactive video installation will give visitors a taste of how the book will take readers on a journey behind the scenes and into the lives of his subjects, their traditions and environments. (A mobile app will give readers access to Nelson’s 360 films and additional material.)
