Portraits Of The World’s Remotest Tribes Before They Pass Away
In an ambitious project that began in 2009, British photographer Jimmy Nelson has travelled all over the world to visit 31 indigenous tribes and capture their way of life before it’s gone forever. The result is ‘Before They Pass Away’, a series of portraits from the Gauchos of Argentina to Chukchi of far northern Siberia. Nelson photographed these tribes using a 50-year-old plate film camera that captures these people and their environs in stunning clarity on 13 trips covering 44 countries. A very small selection is posted here.
