Meet the last tribes on earth, before they pass away.
“The purity of humanity exists. It is there in the mountains, the ice fields, the jungle, along the rivers and in the valleys.”
Jimmy Nelson (Sevenoaks, Kent, 1967) together with his Dutch wife, has documented a body of work that would be an irreplaceable ethnographic record of a fast disappearing world. Whether in Papua New Guinea or in Kazakhstan, in Ethiopia or in Siberia, tribes are the last resorts of natural authenticity.
We get a look into the different tribes’ varying and unique cultural creativity with their painted faces, scarified bodies, jewellery, extravagant hairstyles and ritual language, captured with an extraordinary view into the emotional and spiritual lives here.
