The Lives Of Twenty Nine Vanishing Tribes. Before They Pass Away. A Superb Visual Testimony By Jimmy Nelson...
He documents twenty nine tribes, some more lost than others on this crazy planet.
Our so called civilized world.
There's more than fifteen million people at home in the mountains, the ice fields, the jungles, along the rivers and in hidden valleys.
Jimmy Nelson's wonderful book Before They Pass Away gives us the opportunity to see, understand and remember before many of these remote and indigenous peoples are no more. Many of these tribal people are vanishing and with their passing, their unique languages and traditional ways of life.
A last visual witness of human beauty perhaps.
Painted bodies, pure spirits and free souls.
When they pass, part of ourselves will pass too. Forever...
