Many of us feel a sense of rootlessness. But few of us devote our lives to searching for a place to call home – while also fighting to ensure that our roots, our human origins, are not erased. Some who does is Jimmy Nelson, who can also be considered a scenographer and director of the photographs he takes in his encounters with indigenous peoples on his endless journey.
"We must both photograph them before they’re gone, and fight to prevent this from happening. Every tribe possesses a unique story in its capacity to symbiotically live together with wildlife and nature, a skill that has sometimes taken millennia to evolve. And they will soon disappear if we don’t make a concerted effort, and when they disappear our roots will disappear along with them." – says Jimmy Nelson.
