Otherworldy

vanishing tribesWhen I was young, our parents used to take us to see the Cleveland Ballet perform The Nutcracker most Christmas seasons.  My favorite part bar none were the scenes in which Clara and The Prince traveled through exotic Arabian, Chinese and Russian lands on their way to meet the King and Queen.  These scenes were my first glimpses into foreign lands and I was utterly mesmerized.  When I saw the portraits of some of the world’s most remote tribes taken by photographer Jimmy Nelson posted online last week, I was reminded of the sense of awe I experienced so many years ago when other worlds were presented to me with such distant and magical beauty.  Many more tribal portraits can be found here.
