Synopsis: In this ambitious work, Hans Silvester turns his photographic eye toward ancient Africa, the birthplace of humanity. Silvester was essentially adopted by his subjects during his travels, and his stunning color photographs present a rare, intimate view of their world.

The first volume of this deluxe two-volume set presents the everyday lives of the Omo people, their rituals, parades, children?s games, and even their battles. In the second volume, each photograph becomes a masterpiece of abstract art, revealing close-ups of the tribes? traditional body paintings. Silvester?s accompanying text traces his journey to the Horn of Africa, revealing the fascinating beauty of a world now in danger of extinction.

About the Author: Hans Silvester was born in Germany in 1938 and took his first photographs at the age of twelve. He became a master photographer and world traveler. His many books include Cats in the Sun and Lavender: Fragrance of Provence (Abrams).
