    Design Free Thursday // Before They Pass Away by Jimmy Nelson.

    28th November

    Jimmy Nelson is a photographer of people who set out to search for the world’s last indigenous cultures. His goal is to document these rapidly disappearing communities for future generations. Nelson’s fascinating project, Before They Pass Away, is a unique global documentation of the worlds last and most beautiful tribes and cultures.

The premise of the project is to highlight the idea that wearing a disguise, or dressing a certain way, can really change how we behave and how other people perceive us. I’m sure this is something we’ve all experienced in our everyday life, although this project takes things to the extreme…

Allow me to introduce you to Wasted Rita – a visual artist, agent provocateur, anti-everything and jerk magnet based in Porto, Portugal when not traveling around the world. She describes herself sarcastic as needed, and a full-time thinker who must write about life, human behaviours and play with words to keep breathing…
