Jimmy Nelson

Here's another fascinating photo exhibition: Jimmy Nelson: Before They Pass Away. These are peoples out of touch with the modern world and Jimmy has been trying to make a photographic record of them before they vanish. Shown is his photo of A Maori Woman at Rauwhiri Winitana Paki, Taupo Village, North Island, New Zealand (2011). What a freckly beauty! This free exhibition is at the Atlas Gallery, which has one of those clever-dick websites that tells you nothing, not even where the gallery is. I tracked it down to 49 Dorset Street, Marylebone, London, W1U 7NF. It even had the show down as forthcoming when it opened today! CLICK if you must. Better still, CLICK for the BBC's In pictures. The photos are terrific.
