The ancient Namibian Himba tribe

Posted by rod - 09.07.2013

British photographer Jimmy Nelson has launched a very interesting project called “Before they pass away”. Jimmy visited 44 countries around the world and documented 29 remote and unique tribes which he photographed with a traditional 50-year old plate camera. Below are the some of his pictures whilst visiting the ancient Namibian Himba tribe.

 “Since the 16th century they have lived in scattered settlements, leading a life that has remained unchanged, surviving war and droughts. The tribal structure helps them live in one of the most extreme environments on earth.”

For more information check out his site, or buy his book.
