The Wonderfully Diverse, Colorful Cultures And Indigenous Peoples Of Planet Earth

Immersed in the fast-paced flow of Western culture, particularly internet culture which is constantly in flux, it's easy to forget that although it might seem dominant, it's only a small fraction of the many varied and colorful cultures that populate the earth.

These photos are a great reminder that beyond the new Star Wars movie, cats videos, and Starbucks' festive cups, lies many, many peoples and their histories, their stories, their folklore, and their societies.

From the ancient tribes of Ethiopia's Omo Valley to the nomadic herders of Namibia's Skeleton Coast, to the Rabari in Gujarat, India, the gauchos of Argentina, the Chukchi people of Siberia, and the Kazakh of Mongolia, peoples of all continents are covered in these incredible photos and portraits.

They're testament to the diversity human culture on the planet, and a warning at what's at stake when it comes to globalization, the effects of climate change, and the homogenisation of culture.

It's a wonderful photo-collective of the more diverse people of the human race who are slowly disappearing from the planet as their culture embraces the modern world (or in some cases the other way around).
