The disappearing world
Stills from British photographer Jimmy Nelson's short film, Blink. And They're Gone, look like covers for National Geographic. In which case, Nat Geo is set for 1,500 covers, because those many images appear in the film, in the blink of an eye. By befriending and gaining the trust of members from 36 indigenous tribes, Nelson has lovingly captured their textile traditions, headdresses, abodes and meals.

The film opens with the tribes 'posing' on different branches of native trees - baobabs and banyans - and moves on to scenes from their daily life: hunting fish, skinning carcasses, navigating their unforgiving landscapes. Helmed by Senthil Kumar, chief creative officer of ad agency JWT India, the two-and-something-minute film is a comment on how precious this world is, and how it's disappearing right before our eyes.
