“Before They Pass Away” by Jimmy Nelson

In 2009, photographer Jimmy Nelson set out on a journey to document the “world’s last indigenous cultures”. Using a 4×5 camera, Nelson took an amazing series of portraits, featuring 31 ancient tribes around the world.

The project, entitled Before They Pass Away, culminated with an elegant book and will be extended by a film. So embark on a journey to the most remote corners and meet the witnesses of a disappearing world.

Would you give up your smartphone, internet and TV to live free like them?
