Who would of thought anybody from the small-town, civil parish of Sevenoaks, Kent, England would become a world renowned photographer? Well, that was just the case for indigenous photographer, Jimmy Nelson born in 1967 known for his portraits of tribal people in their natural element. During his early childhood, Nelson and his family were always traveling and moving. Moving from England to Africa, Asia, and (I’m not done yet) to South America for his parents’ career reasons. These early experiences, exploring and immersing himself in a foreign world at such a young age, were the catalysts for his future passion, to become a photographer. At the age of 8, however, the traveling stopped (a decision made by his parents), and he was sent to Stonyhurst College, a Jesuit boarding school in northern England. During his time there, shortly after turning 16 he contracted Alopecia totalis, a medical condition that resulted in all of his hair falling out- which is why he is still bald today. After spending almost 11 years at Stonyhurst, he was about to embark on the adventure of life; starting with a bang
When he was only 19, Jimmy Nelson left boarding school, and took almost no time to figure out what he wanted to do with his life. Following his passion of photography, he ventured Tibet where his plan was to walk the length of the country bringing with him a small camera to capture his adventures. The whole trip took about a year and it acted as the bridge for him to become a professional photographer when he returned home. The start to his photography career involved him recording photographs of a variety of current events in the world, to the ongoing struggle for Kashmir between Pakistan and India, Russian involvement in Afghanistan, and even the beginning of the Yugoslavian war. Possibly one of the biggest turning points in his career was when Shell Oil hired him to create the book, “Literary Portraits of China”, where he transversed the massive country with his wife, Ashkaine Hora Adema. They were truly partners in crime, as he obviously captured the images, and she did the writing for the book. 
In his most famous project, “Before They Pass Away”, travelled the world for three years where he captured pictures of more than 35 indigenous tribes all over the world, all while using a fifty-year-old camera. His results were truly amazing, as that project is now world renowned. Nowadays Nelson does commercial advertising work, and is married with three children in Amsterdam.
