When I first came across Jimmy Nelson, it was in a Waterstones in London. I picked up his book ‘Before They Pass Away’, a documentation of some of the last tribe’s on earth. I was Immediately inspired to recreate something as powerful and as beautiful as his images.
It was the spark for the entire project.
The furs, the feathers, the faces, the back drops, the patterns, the colours, the cultures. They were all so amazing.
