Overview

Meet the men, women, and children of the world's vanishing indigenous tribes...as you've never seen them before. Acclaimed Japanese photographer Hibiki Kobayashi's exceedingly rich, huge tritone portraits of the wanderers, the lost ones, the refugees, and the exiled are boldly presented by the renowned art director Fabien Baron.

In the spirit of Avedon's classic In The American West, Kobayashi photographs his subjects against a stark white background to reveal in striking detail the tribes' adornments, clothes, postures, and, ultimately, their sublime identities. Baron's audacious full-page bleeds and "Tribe's" gigantic trim size envelop the viewer with more than one hundred images taken in the remotest regions of Asia, the Middle East, Africa, South America, and the Pacific Rim.

Editorial Reviews

Guy Trebay
So oblivious is this colonialist photofest of the prevailing political winds that you've almost got to love it. It may be the last of an unselfconscious breed. . . Designed by art director Fabien Baron, and published by the ussually admirable art press powerHouse, Tribe trumps the clich&#233s of the genre. -- Village Voice
Harper's
Kobayashi's vivid, exquisitely rendered portraits are stark in their differences and detail. The lack of explanatory text seems to emphasize the distinctive traits of each group, but also to suggest that this distinctiveness won't last too long. The results are moving, without being condescending.
Vibe Magazine
It took Kobayashi 10 years to find and shoot the vanishing clans in Tribe. The result is striking, raw.
