‘Tribe’ by Ben Moore

“I remember taking my first photograph as a child using an old 1970’s Nikon SLR. Twenty five years later, and my passion and love of photography has only grown and grown. I live and breathe through my lenses and quite simply adore taking photographs. I didn’t actually study photography… I spent my college and university years following my other great passion, biodiversity conservation. I was lucky enough to spend time in some of the most remote and spectacular places on the planet, and in completing many research projects for my degree, masters and PhD, my love for photography grew and grew. So instead of crawling around the amazon jungle tagging crocodiles or climbing cloud-capped peaks on the Galapagos Islands looking for giant tortoises, I now travel to equally spectacular places, but with my camera in my hand… not a magnifying glass…” —Ben Moore

Documenting the Samburu
“I traveled to the remote scrublands of northern Kenya to photograph the culture and rituals of the Samburu tribe. The Samburu, a proud warrior-race of nomadic pastoralists, herd goats, cattle and camels and occasionally keep donkeys as beasts of burden. Traditionally the men tend to the cattle, moving them to different grazing areas every 6-8 weeks, and are also responsible for the safety of the tribe. …” — Daniel Berehulak Photography

The Last of Eden by Sebastião Salgado

The Last of Eden
On one of the last islands of intact rain forest in Brazil’s eastern Amazon, the Awá Indians face the seemingly inexorable eradication of their home. Even the legal victory that deeded them the land hasn’t stopped the ruthless felling of trees by forces they can’t even comprehend. Photographer Sebastião Salgado captures the Awá’s world, while Alex Shoumatoff hits the forest trails with the most endangered tribe on earth.

“In Southwestern Ethiopia lives a primitive tribe called the Surmas. While they have been on the receiving end of the lens before, photographer Jean Michel Voge opted to capture them in a different light. Here I interview him about his project and the Surma tribe.” — by Olivier Duong
