‘Homage to Humanity’ is a new photo book about tribes from around the world, created by non other than Jimmy Nelson, the author of ‘Before They Pass Away’. Jimmy Nelson decided to take us on a trip around the globe, by exploring some of the world’s most amazing cultures.

Tribes, clans and settlements from remote parts of any continent are an attraction by themselves, but when you start documenting them, you realize that each and every one of these cultures are unique and amazing in their own right.

Start exploring the world with this new photo book, available on Jimmy Nelson’s official website, right here.

If a Huli woman is widowed, she transforms herself into a ghost-like figure, covering her whole body with white and grey clay and swathing herself in a net. She does so to hide from her husband’s spirit, out of a belief that if she is un-recognizable to the souls of the ancestors she will be able to find another husband and remarry. Grieving women also wear necklaces made of seeds. Each week they remove a number of seeds until they are all gone, a point which marks the end of the period of mourning. .

Hey there, it’s the Jimmy Nelson Foundation (@jimmynelsonfoundation) taking over this account for this week! . Ever since 1671, horsemen and shepherds have been coming together for this event. Today, the festival is still celebrated and symbolises the ancient lifestyle of the horsemen that is still present in this area (though in small numbers). As the horsemen show off their traditions and impressive horse-riding skills, the festival is a colourful celebration of the Hungarian cultural heritage and – perhaps – a homage to “the last wranglers of Europe”. . “We went out to explore the nearby “Hortobágyi Lovasnapok” festival area, which is located in the Hungarian puszta, on the Great Plain of Eastern Hungary. During this cultural event, the csikós from the 300 year-old Máta Stud Farm (along with other horseback riders) showcase their traditions and horse riding skills.” . Although the “csikós” profession has been in the families from generation to generation, often times there are still enthusiastic “applicants” who only see the “shiny” side of this lifestyle, their proud posture, strength and death-defying riding skills with unattached saddles. The reason for using unattached saddles, which is quite rare, is that they can mount any horse faster in case they need to switch horses. . Photo by Kieke van Maarschalkerwaart (@travel.soap) .
