They do not know what is car, electricity, hamburger and the United Nations are. They get their food by hunting and fishing, they believe that the gods send rain, they do not know how to write and read. They may die catching a cold or flu. They are a godsend for anthropologists and evolutionists, but they are dying out. They are wild tribes that have preserved the lifestyle of their ancestors and avoiding contact with the modern world.

Photographer Jimmy Nelson spent his last years exploring the most remote places on Earth to make these breathtaking photos of representatives of endangered tribes.

Many indigenous tribes are losing out survival in an era of society obsessed with "progress" and "economic achievements". They lose territory, remain without grazing land, without forests, in which they have always hunted. Nevertheless, some manage to preserve their traditional lifestyle.

Jimmy Nelson (Jimmy Nelson) went on a difficult journey and visited the most distant tribes of our planet. He made portraits of indigenous peoples and put them together in a photo book, the name of which speaks for itself: “Before They Pass Away”.
