The photos catalog many significant shifts in the world’s indigenous cultures. Among its fantastic array of stark and compelling imagery, collectors will find prison abattoirs, sacred Mexican rituals, and cock-fighting in Bangkok. The images take viewers on a journey from war-torn Iraq, along Rajasthan’s rich history and up to Greenland’s icy tundra and beyond.
Those taking a peek into this incredible photography collection will find images by first-rate masters in lens craft, including visual maestros such as Werner Bischof, Myriam Boulos, Sabiha Çimen, and Ernest Cole, among others. Each demonstrates a fantastic gift for framing and capturing special moments in the ever-evolving geopolitical landscape.
