The Dissapearring Tribes of the World (Pictures)

A few years ago, photographer Jimmy Nelson set out to capture the most remote tribes in the world, the one’s that are still almost virtually cut off from our modern society.

According to Nelson, his mission was to capture and document these tribes before their cultures and traditional ways of life disappeared completely.

He called the project “Before They Pass Away”. Here are some of my favorite photos from the project, but you should DEFINITELY check out the full project.
