Natural Fashion by Hans Silvester
Sorry, this product is not currently available to order


Over the course of numerous voyages to the wilds of Africaas Omo Valley, Hans Silvester became fascinated by the beauty of the Surma, Mursi, Hamer and Kurma tribes, who share a taste for body painting and extravagant decorations borrowed from nature. For these people, flesh becomes a raw material on which wonderfully inventive decorative fantasties can be played out. Hans Silvesteras astonishing photographs capture these accoutrements to form a parade of African fashion that is as rich as it is ephemeral. This book is an elegy to nature, revealed by the Omo people in all its beauty and extravagance.
