Before They Pass Away

There is nothing I value more in this world than travel. Learning about different cultures and how they communicate, live and function is incredibly important to our happiness as people of the 21st century. In this collection of work by Jimmy Nelson he not only captures the beauty and extremes of different cultures, he captures some of last indigenous peoples of the world, 29 tribes to be exact; living among them, learning their customs, eating their food and earning their trust. The result is a timeless, stunning body of work full of powerful raw emotion, invaluable to our history as people.

Below find, in no particular order, a few of my favorite shots. I hope you enjoy this as much as I do.
