Jimmy Nelson is a world renown photographer of indigenous people. His work has appeared in countless exhibits, magazines, books and has even given a Ted Talk to help encourage others to explore and open up their imagination. His project, Before They Pass Away, takes us on a journey into the lives of how 15 million people in 29 tribes are currently living. His story and images are incredible, so much so that is forces us to recognize that our world is so much more enlightening than what we see on a daily basis. Here is a brief look into his journey.
