This incredible photo series by UK photographer Jimmy Nelson documents some of the last known tribes on earth to not be spoilt by modernised man. It might seem hard to imagine that in a world that is constantly shrinking thanks to advances in technology that entire cultures still exist that haven't changed their way of life for thousands of years.
From 1997 onwards whilst taking on commercial projects at the same time, Jimmy committed himself to a task that would turn out to be a career defining project to capture these tribes before they pass away. The result of this project is the stunning photographs you see below.
Although the people in the tribes look strange to us, imagine what they thought of Jimmy as he was taking these photographs.
Jimmy plans to return to the tribes one day to show them how he captured them in these stunning photographs. We thank him for documenting these tribes and their untouched and unspoilt lives. Lets hope thats the way they stay for centuries to come.
