Jimmy Nelson's Amazing Tribal Photography

 Our world is constantly moving toward increased urbanization, but with that being said, there are still some remote tribes that exist around our planet that to date have managed to retain their traditional way of life. This year, photographer Jimmy Nelson visited no less than 34 indigenous cultures on five different continents as part of his work for Homage to Humanity. The movie captures Jimmy's journey as he travels through the different cultures by means of 1,500 photos he took along the way and will be released shortly. In the meantime, here are some of the tribes he met on his journey:
