Steppes Travel: Before They Pass - Jimmy Nelson
Steppes Travel are delighted to offer an evening with Jimmy Nelson, in support of ActionAid.
___________________________________________________________

Acclaimed photographer Jimmy Nelson discusses the fragility and beauty of shrinking communities around the world; his inspiration for his new book "Before They Pass Away".

As passionate as ever to document the last of the unspoilt tribes, Nelson celebrates the very essence of their being; be it their traditional dresses, jewellery, weapons, or body paintings. Whether it is in the mountains, ice fields, the jungle or in the valleys, he is ever the explorer keen to uncover and capture the hidden truth of a threatened tribes people and culture.

His work is not merely about the aesthetical appeal. It is a plea to open our hearts and minds to the delicate nature of indigenous people. Respecting their habitats, recording their pride and helping to pass on their traditions to generations to come, recognising them as part of our collective history; to simply not forget them.

Together with Jimmy Nelson, join us in a special evening, in partnership with Papua New Guinea Tourist Board, dedicated to learning more about our history, our origins, our world.

In support of ActionAid which works in over 40 countries across Africa, Asia and Latin America, helping people to break free from poverty, working side-by-side with the most vulnerable and disadvantaged people to fight for freedom from hunger, a sustainable income, quality education for all, women's rights, and to build resilience to emergencies and disasters.
