"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
Photographs of various tribes around the world have always fascinated me, especially when my boyfriend offered me the book “Before They Pass Away" by Jimmy Nelson, it sparked my interest to start collecting pictures of tribes I considered powerful, empowering and often times mystical.
Some of these photographs encouraged me to make more art and jewelry and some of them I could spend hours looking at.
