21 Stunning Photos Of Tribes That Are Completely Cut Off From Society

There are peoples who live isolated from the rest of the world and a British photographer was in charge of finding them to share the images of their lives.

Before they disappear without a trace, imagery expert Jimmy Nelson traveled five continents in search of the most remote tribes of our dominant cultures of East and West, to portray their lifestyles.

In total, the photographer from Sevenoaks, United Kingdom, visited 34 indigenous cultures from Mongolia to Indonesia and at the end of his trip published his project entitled Homage to Humanity. His main objective was to change the perception about the tribes confined in the corners of the world and for him it was a great experience:

“When I was 17 years old, I started a journey and it is still the journey I am on today. It’s about reconnecting and finding myself. I dressed him up and dressed him up with photography, tribes and indigenous cultures, but ultimately it’s a very personal journey of wanting to feel, survive and be alive.”
