Last African WarriorsBook - 2009
A masterpiece of field photography! Gianni Giansanti, author of Vanishing Africa , provides an intimate and sympathetic portrait of the continent's most remote indigenous tribes. Trekking deep into aboriginal Africa, he documents the masks, plumage, and adornment used to invoke martial magic. Employing virtuoso techniques of chiaroscuro, stark contrasts of texture and color, and juxtapositions of the primordial and the modern, he offers a rare glimpse into an archetypally vivid world.
