The purity of humanity exists. It is there in the mountains, the ice fields, the jungle, along the rivers and in the valleys. Photographer Jimmy Nelson found the last tribesmen of the world's most threatened communities and photographed them. Whether in Papua New Guinea or in Kazakhstan, in Ethiopia or in Siberia, these tribes are the last resorts of natural authenticity. This book forces us to watch, to understand, and to remember.

This historic volume showcases tribal cultures around the world. With globalization, these societies are to be prized for their distinctive lifestyles, art and traditions. They live in close harmony with nature, now a rarity in our modern era. Jimmy Nelson not only presents us with stunning images of customs and artifacts, but also offers insightful portraits of people who are the guardians of a culture that they--and we--hope will be passed on to future generations in all its glory. Nelson's large-plate field camera captures every intricate detail and fine nuance for posterity. What's more, this splendid pageantry is set against a vivid backdrop of some of the world's most pristine landscapes. English/German/French edition. Folio {11 & 1/2' x 15'} Tan calf's hide covered boards with blindstamped lettering on spine and front board. In very good plus dustjacket. 'With some text in English, French, and German.' Tight binding. Clean, sound, very good+/like new overall. Eleventh printing. [ 423 pages ]
