Photographer Jimmy Nelson begin a journey around the world in 2009. His purpose? To document the world's last indigenous cultures. When you see his portraits, your mind will be full of wonder.

 

Before They Pass Away (which can be found in 3 different versions) features stories of Nelson's encounters and journey around the world engaging with, what seems to be, forgotten tribes. 

 

The time spent learning more about their culture and history also led to many invitations to speak at exhibits around the world. You can see if there are upcoming events near you and check out his project's official website here.
