Man as Art

I made a discovery today. My mother's husband showed me a book that totally blew my mind.
Its's about tribes from Papua New Guinea. Originally published as a $45 hardcover in 1981, this book is essentially a collection of photographs of New Guinea natives decked out in their finest paint, feathers, and jewelry. It is made by the photographer Malcolm Kirk. The German title is "Menschen und Masken". The photographer is using a Nikon camera and a 55-mm-Micro-Nikkor. No Buchlas in Papua New Guinea I guess but I will be thinking about this amazing pictures the next time I'll patch something. If you find this book anywhere check it out.
