Mind-Blowing Photographs Of The Last Surviving Tribes On Earth

Jimmy Nelson, who is a photographer, has spent the past 3 years exploring the most remote places on Earth, capturing the last surviving tribes. A lot of these tribes are still under genocidal violence.

CHINESE FISHING TRIBE

The men ‘hide’ their penis in their scrotum, to which a leaf is then tightly tied. The tribes live in tree houses and separate men from women.
