With his pictures, photographer Jimmy Nelson documented 35 unique tribes in 44 countries around the world. He shares his stories about the connections he made and the lessons he has learned from these travels.

The British travel photographer started his career in 1987 by traversing the length of Tibet on foot. From that moment on Jimmy Nelson set out to document the world's last indigenous cultures, which are rapidly disappearing. He accumulated images of remote and unique cultures photographed with a traditional 50-year-old plate camera. He became a guest of 35 secluded and visually unique tribes in order to document this all in his book Before they Pass Away, an ongoing project to record the cultures of isolated tribes.
