Impressive Photos Of The Most Isolated Tribes In The World

Photographer Jimmy Nelson dedicated his life to documenting the indigenous tribes that are slowly disappearing from our planet. For his newest project 'Homage to Humanity' he visited over 34 indigenous cultures in five different continents, and the result is breathtaking.

Jimmy believes that indigenous people play an essential role in our perception of ourselves as human beings and reconnects to our roots with his art. "When I was 17, I started a journey, and it's still the journey that I'm on today," Nelson said to BoredPanda. "It's about reconnecting and finding myself. I've dressed it and disguised it with photography and tribes and indigenous cultures, but ultimately it's a very personal journey of wanting to feel and survive and be alive."
