21 Stunning Pictures Of Isolated Tribes From All Around The Globe

Photographer Jimmy Nelson recently published his second major project titled “Homage to Humanity.”

Nelson took on the task of visiting 34 different indigenous cultures on spanning five continents.

Nelson’s first book, “Before They Pass Away”, was a collection of pictures of 30+ vanishing tribes from all around the globe.

And while this project can be seen as quite similar, this time the photographer decided to expand and added travel journals, local facts, maps, and personal interviews, shifting his focus from the objects he captures to the journey itself.

In his work, Nelson explores the idea of reconnecting to our roots and humanity.

He thinks indigenous people play an essential role in our perception of ourselves as humans.

That they are connected to a deeper meaning we have lost in this day and age.

That’s why he is inviting everybody to join the global discussion on cultural identity.

Nelson is also planning to release a movie featuring 1500 photos, “all stitched together into one amazing journey across the cradle of human culture.”
