Blink. And They’re Gone: The World’s Last Tribes Captured by Jimmy Nelson

Mask Dancers, Paro, Bhutan

Blink. And They’re Gone is a campaign to preserve cultural diversity and to fight for the preservation of cultural heritage.

This incredible short film features a mesmering montage of 1500+ of Jimmy Nelson’s photographs, which capture 36 of the last indigenous communities (including the Huli Wigmen from Papua New Guinea, the Kazakhs of Mongolia, the Sadhus of India, and the Wodaabe from Chad) in all their glory.

“The film, directed by JWT India’s CCO, Senthil Kumar together with J. Walter Thompson’s global creative lead Bas Korsten, took 90 days to edit, and features only a fraction of the 100,000 images Nelson has shot over the last 30 years.”  shots
