I’m realizing now that The Reading List, might have been more aptly named The Viewing List, considering most of the books I love seem to contain more photos than actual words! (a shocking fact-I know)
In Conflict and Costume, Naughten photographs the Herero Tribe of Namibia in their native costume. This “costume” has evolved over the last 100+ years out of what Europeans left behind in South Africa, and what the Herero Tribe subsequently adopted. To see so many misplaced patterns, shapes, and colors set against an overwhelmingly serene backdrop, surprisingly creates a nice sense of harmony. It’s funny how two contrasting visuals can play off of eachother so nicely.
