Before they Pass Away

PNG-8

The Huli, the Asaro, the Chukchi, the Dropka, the Himba and the Arbore. These are just some of the beautifully named tribes of the world that have been photographed by Jimmy Nelson. The intrepid Brit set out to shoot some of the world’s most obscure peoples in his collection ‘Before they Pass Away’

Hopefully the book won’t merely act as a 21st century memorial to a vanishing way of life but if it does, it’s a beautiful epitaph.
