The photographer Jimmy Nelson, like no one else, is able to photograph those whom you simply cannot see. This is not about ghosts, but about unique tribes and indigenous peoples of different lands. According to data for 2016, 370 million natives live in the world – this is five percent of the world’s population! They live by their own laws and customs, not too willingly communicating with representatives of advanced civilization, and look very cool!

Jimmy somehow manages to find a common language with them – they even pose for him. Therefore, his photos look incredibly impressive! Nelson became famous for his series of pictures called “Before they pass away”, which perfectly reflects the whole essence. War, murder, extermination – this is what small and isolated peoples face.
