The British photographer’s epic portraits present these dignified inheritors of noble and age-old traditions in a proud spirit and in all their glory—a unique visual experience. This exquisitely photographed showcase for world tribal culture is not only a joy to look at, but also an important historical record. This book reveals the wide variety of human experiences and cultural expressions across the ages— and we’re delighted to have it among our fall offerings.

This historic volume showcases tribal cultures around the world. With globalization, these societies are to be prized for their distinctive lifestyles, art and traditions. They live in close harmony with nature, now a rarity in our modern era. Jimmy Nelson not only presents us with stunning images of customs and artifacts, but also offers insightful portraits of people who are the guardians of a culture that they—and we—hope will be passed on to future generations in all its glory. Nelson’s large-plate field camera captures every intricate detail and fine nuance for posterity. What’s more, this splendid pageantry is set against a vivid backdrop of some of the world’s most pristine landscapes.

BUDDHIST MONKS


August 2011Tibetan costume and ornaments communicate not only the habits, but also the history, beliefs, climate and character of the local people, and they have undergone few changes throughout history. The most striking feature of Tibetan costume and ornaments is the large variety, not only in material (including brocade, fur, leather, silk, wool, cotton, and many more) but also – depending on the wearer’s location and occupation – in design.

DHAGI IN DHA VILLAGE, KASHMIR


February 2012The Drokpas are completely different – physically, culturally, linguistically and socially – from the Tibeto-Burman inhabitants of most of Ladakh. Drokpa men and women are tall and fair, with big, lightly coloured eyes, full lips and distinctive noses and eyebrows. As a result, they consider themselves superior and do not marry into other communities. This insularity is how the tribe preserves its ethnicity.
