28 Captivating Photographs of Isolated Tribes Facing Extinction

tribes-facing-extinction-4

Scattered around our world, hidden in the deep jungles and rugged outback places, are hidden a few native tribes that have not ventured forth into modern times. These fascinating cultures are quickly fading away as modern man encroaches into their territory and changes their lives and beliefs forever. Jimmy Nelson has traveled the globe with his camera in hand to document these tribes before they vanish from out planet. His photographs capture them dressed in their colorful celebration outfits, prepared for the hunt, and dressed for war. His book “Before They Fade Away” chronicles their lifestyles, cultures, art, and tradition in a attempt to preserve their memories before our society washes it away.

You can find the book on Amazon for around $245.
