Nepalese Honey Hunters


Documenting the Gurung tribespeople, Andrew Newey has some amazing photographs of this ancient and dangerous profession of harvesting honey from the world’s largest honeybee. The honeycombs are enormous! At risk from climate change and bee population decline as well as government intervention, this tradition seems to be on its way out. Newey’s photos will stand as history to this unique and beautifully bizarre art. Via MyModernMet:
