The purity of humanity exists. It is there in the mountains, the ice fields, the jungle, along the rivers and in the valleys. Photographer Jimmy Nelson found the last tribesmen of the world's most threatened communities and observed them. He smiled and drank their mysterious brews before taking out his camera. He shared what real people share: vibrations, invisible but palpable. As trust grew, a shared understanding of the mission developed: the world must never forget the way things were. Because tribes and forgotten cultures can teach us about aspects of humanity such as love, respect, peace, survival and sharing. There is a pure beauty in their goals and family ties, their belief in gods and nature, and their will to do the right thing in order to be taken care of when their time comes. Whether in Papua New Guinea or in Kazakhstan, in Ethiopia or in Siberia, these tribes are the last resorts of natural authenticity. This remarkable book by Jimmy Nelson forces us to watch, to understand and to remember. Before they pass away. The Featured Tribes: Chukchi - Siberia; Dropka - Tibet; Gauchos - South America; Himba - Namibia; Huaorani - Ecuador; Kazakhs - Central Asia; Ladakhi - Kashmir; Maasai - East Africa; Maori - New Zealand; Miao - China; Mursi - Ethiopia; Mustang Lopa - Nepal; Nenets - Arctic Russia; Ni-Vanuatu - Pacific; Omo Valley Tribes - Ethiopia; Papua in Indonesia; Papua in New Guinea; Rabari - India; Samburu - Kenya; Tibetans; Tsataan - Mongolia. This beautiful extra-large photographic study of the world's most threatened tribes and cultures is a limited edition hardback packaged in a clamshell presentation box.
