Photographer captures ancient tribes around the world

World Bulletin / News Desk

British photographer Jimmy Nelson has spent the past year touring the world, searching for what could perhaps be the last chance to eternalize the quickly vanishing aspects of native culture, which has been preserved by the few remaining indigenous tribes left in the world.

His latest photography book, called ‘Before They Pass Away’, has hit the shelves. It features his journey to 29 different tribes in some of the most remote parts of the world.

Using a 50-year-old 4x5in camera, Nelson has taken some remarkable photographs that provide amazing insight into the ancient lifestyle and traditions of what many call ‘the last free people on earth.’
