Huli Tribe, PNG.  Papua New Guinean tribes fought "over land, pigs and women. Great effort is made to impress the enemy. The largest tribe, the Huli wigmen, paint their faces yellow, red and white and are famous for their tradition of making ornamented wigs from their own hair. An axe with a claw completes the intimidating effect." - Before They Pass Away

Over three years, photographer Jimmy Nelson travelled the world, ‘visiting more than 35 groups, tribes and people of indigenous cultures’ to create his incredible photo series, 'Before They Pass Away'.
