About the book:
Acclaimed British photographer Jimmy Nelson presents his latest collection of 400 evocative photographs revealing an inclusive look at the people and cultures of over thirty iconic tribes from around the world. From the Himalayas with the Laylap in Bhutan to the last hidden outposts of Africa with the Mundari in isolated South Sudan, these tribal cultures, many which have long been hidden from the world's eyes, are documented with an intimacy and knowledge that only Nelson can conjure. This new assemblage of voyages is accompanied by insightful, engaging interviews with tribe leaders, infographics on the locations and cultures of each destination, and a new mobile application that allows readers to view; film material, behind the scenes video, storytelling, and interviews from all the journeys--inviting readers on a journey to the remotest places on earth. This unique volume--truly an invaluable time capsule of the last surviving tribes--is an essential for travel and photography enthusiasts. Nelson's large-plate field camera captures every minute detail, vivid colour, and dramatic light to produce awe-inspiring portraits of tribal members: from head-on shots, to visual narratives documenting quotidian life, rituals, and rites of passage, and striking pictures of marvellous and sometimes harsh landscapes.
