Photography of Isolated Tribes Facing Extinction

catinwater quote

It may be hard to believe but the modern world we live in, full of computers and smartphones (and sometimes dumb people), there are still tribes isolated from the twenty first century civilization. Culture minorities like these might be the only alive proofs of antiquity. This is why it is so important to perpetuate them as they are fading away as the time passes.

Jimmy Nelson has traveled the globe with his camera in hand to document these tribes before they vanish from out planet. Enjoy the photography of the daily life and traditions of this kind that is unfortunately now facing extinction.
