You need to glimpse the majesty of these remote tribes before their authenticity is lost.

Photographer Jimmy Nelson, in a period of over four years, documented twenty-nine cultures and tribes at risk of disappearing from their remote corners of the world.

His intention was to “celebrate the beauty of these cultures and their traditional ways of life” and truly succeeded.

Some of the photographs from his collection, which he also shared in his book titled “Before They Pass Away,” follow. You need to glimpse the majesty of these remote tribes before they disappear.
