Colors of the vanishing tribes by Bonnie Young( Book )

8 editions published in 1998 in English and held by 111 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The images in this book are organized by color and pattern, starting with black, Donna Karan's "tribal" color, which she believes represents a creative canvas, open to imagination and expression, ready to absorb color and light. As the pages unfold, the photographer reveals the blues of China, the reds from the monasteries of Tibet, the ambers of Mali, the indigo of the Saharan Tuaregs, the yellows and wine purples of the Woodabe people of Niger, and the greens and grays of Vietnam. Young has observed that the colors associated with the peoples she visited are vanishing because of the impact of modern culture, and she feels strongly that is important to see and appreciate these colors before they are modified or disappear. Accompanying the pictures are brief captions by Donna Karan and Bonnie Young that explore how these lyrical colors and patterns can be used to vitalize and soften hard-edged modern fashion

Homage to humanity by Jimmy Nelson( Book )

2 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 32 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Acclaimed British photographer Jimmy Nelson presents his latest collection of 400 evocative photographs revealing an inclusive look at the people and cultures of over thirty iconic tribes from around the world. From the Himalayas with the Laylap in Bhutan to the last hidden outposts of Africa with the Mundari in isolated South Sudan, these tribal cultures, many which have long been hidden from the world's eyes, are documented with an intimacy and knowledge that only Nelson can conjure. This new assemblage of voyages is accompanied by insightful, engaging interviews with tribe leaders, infographics on the locations and cultures of each destination, and a new mobile application that allows readers to view; film material, behind the scenes video, storytelling, and interviews from all the journeys--inviting readers on a journey to the remotest places on earth. Before They Pass Away II celebrates each tribe's distinct aesthetic cultural heritage and is a visual document, perhaps even the last record, that reminds us and future generations of the beauty and harmony of these tribes and the purity of their way of life. This unique volume--truly an invaluable time capsule of the last surviving tribes--is an essential for travel and photography enthusiasts. Nelson's large-plate field camera captures every minute detail, vivid colour, and dramatic light to produce awe-inspiring portraits of tribal members: from head-on shots, to visual narratives documenting quotidian life, rituals, and rites of passage, and striking pictures of marvellous and sometimes harsh landscapes

Haiti untold( Visual )

1 edition published in 2013 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Haiti untold chronicles the personal journey of a few famous and not-so-famous individuals who have put their heads and hearts to the task of effecting radical change in Haiti, following the devastating earthquake of 2010. The film also provides an unusual counter point-of-view on what is really happening in the country, looking beyond the ethos of fast-food journalism, which seems at times to feed exclusively on tragedies to scandals while skipping over the stories of hope and re-building. Many of us who were moved to give generously in response to the quake, when listening to the media, now wonder if all the donations made any difference at all. Is there hope in this land of devastation? Actor Sean Penn, NHL Player Georges Laraque, as well as designers Donna Karan (DKNY) and Joey Adler (Diesel Canada), Dennis O'Brian (Digicel Founder & CEO), Bill Evans, the President of the famous Golf Club that housed the largest IDP camp Haitian, and Dave Toycen, President & CEO of World Vision Canada have all dedicated their lives to responding to the cry of the nation of Haiti following the quake. Their stories lead us to discover the people they have touched and the impact they are having in shaping the future history of a country many have given up for lost"--Http://haitiuntold.com/story-2/ (as viewed on 2/25/2014)
