Together with Anke Degenhard and Michael Drinkhahn of the Crossover Gallery in Hamburg, we have made an exclusive selection of the over 500 images shown in ‘Before They Pass Away’ . Which are all available in 4 different sizes and as an limited edition of 19 in total. All Art Prints are delivered with a stamp of authentication and accompanying certificate.

Magic Group Media has been Jimmy Nelson’s creative partner and adviser for more than15 years. For the “Before They Pass Away” project they advised Jimmy on many creative issues and have taken the images under their care from a (analog development) to z (the highest possible quality- ready for print). We are proud to tell you this eventually led to sponsor ship by Magic Group Media for the “Before They // Part II” project.

Grauwert in Hamburg arranges the beautiful chromogenic prints mounted on aluminium. Grauwert has been operating worldwide since 1984 for museums, artists like Bryan Adams and Ellen von Umwerth among many others.  "Together with the artist we implement 'soul' to both digital and analog images." 

The images are framed by Rohlfs (Hamburg) in nut wood behind museum art glass. Gerhard Rohlfs has been manufacturing frames and is self employed since 26 years. With his staff he makes sure every frame is customized and in respect to the work and the artist like Douglas Kirkland, Andreas Mühe, Mary McCartney and F.C. Gundlach.
