Between the two lockdowns i just had the luckiest time to see Jimmy Nelson’s exhibition in Paris at L’atelier des lumières and it was so sublime. For all the inspirations that come from people around the world at a time where we are forced to stay home, the riches traditions of those tribes were a huge joy and an invitation to travel oversize to an immersive experience honouring the world’s last indigenous cultures. No more words just watch this :

The Last Sentinels is a beautiful lush catalogue combining images from both Before They Pass Away and Homage to Humanity. The catalogue gives a visual overview of the communities visited by Jimmy Nelson. The people are a living example of how to live in full connection with each other, ourself and the natural world. They are the few on this planet that are still in touch with this knowledge and live by their values. These cultures are the guardians or ‘last sentinels’ of both humanity and this planet. Like both the coffee-table books, every image of The Last Sentinels is scannable with the free Jimmy Nelson App, revealing unique video content behind every picture.
