Born in Chile and raised in Belgium, Hannelore is a photographer and a creative entrepreneur, but most of all, she’s a storyteller.
In 2009, after graduating with a degree in photography, she embarked on her first assignment: Jimmy Nelson’s Before They Pass Away project. For almost three years, she travelled to the most remote places on Earth and assisted Nelson as he captured the planet’s last remaining indigenous tribes.
Hannelore documented this epic journey in her bestselling book, Before They Pass Away: the stories behind the photos.
She’s now working on her biggest undertaking yet: Human Playground, a photo book, art prints and a Netflix Original documentary series about sport, culture and tradition. Hannelore is the creator and photographer of this unique multimedia production.
Jimmy Nelson’s international bestseller, Before They Pass Away, gives an intimate visual account of the last people on our planet living in accordance with their tribal traditions.
But what was it like to take these photos, how was the photographer able to ﬁnd these tribes and what did the crew have to endure while shooting these incredible images? Despite extreme temperatures, injuries and treacherous paths, the team was able to come into contact with a number of unknown cultures.
In this book, Before They Pass Away: The stories behind the photos, Hannelore sheds light on the incredible stories of adventure, friendship, amazement, joy and sadness that lie behind the photos presented in Before They Pass Away. Not only did this journey of discovery have a positive impact on these tribes, it also changed Hannelore and her travel companions forever.
