This is a great post … Samburu Tribe!
This shot was taken on the Ndoto Mountain Range in Kenya in 2010 of the Samburu tribe. The photo is part of a long-term project by Jimmy Nelson, a British Photographer, to capture indigenous people. The project titled Before They Pass Away captures stunning images which feature 15 million people from 29 tribes on five continents. Before They Pass Away is his effort to capture the “natural authenticity” of these tribes where he believes the “the purity of humanity exists.” “Jimmy Nelson found the last tribesmen and observed them. He smiled and drank their mysterious brews before taking out his camera. He shared what real people share: vibrations, invisible but palpable.” Nelson’s ultimate goal, to create “an ethnographic record of a fast disappearing world.”
