Booktalk: Photographer Jimmy Nelson’s “Homage To Humanity”

In Booktalk

Homage To Humanity by Jimmy Nelson is a stunning coffee table book of more than 500 pages and photographs of indigenous tribes around the world. The author’s quest is to photograph these remote people before they vanish.

And he believes the new global language is the visual language of photography, rather than the words that are spoken. Jimmy offers a free app displaying the book.

 

Top authors are interviewed on this 10-minute program that captures their words about their books and ideas and often the story behind the story. The show, hosted by Diana Korte and engineered by Gene Korte, has been in production for over 20 years.
