Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Fashion Tribes, award-winning photographer Daniele Tamagni has tracked down and recorded some of the most surprising and colorful international fashion subcultures. Through documentary shots and staged portraiture, heandrsquo;s captured heavy metal rockers in Botswana, hipsters in Johannesburg, dandies in the Congo, female wrestlers in Bolivia, andldquo;bling blingandrdquo; youth in Cuba, punks in Burma, and models in Senegal.

and#160;

Often marginalized on the fringes of their own societies and looking to stand out, these people fight back and express their creativity and joy through personal style. Alongside the seven subcultures featured are essays by leading experts in fashion, art, anthropology, and sociology that explore all facets of style. Fashion Tribes offers a broad view of world dress and shows the power that clothing can hold.

Before Tibor died, he and Maira traveled extensively and collected images of the insane, inspired, and beautiful clothing and other body ornament. Here are photographs with no text beyond section headings; captions and credits are appended. Among the sections body art, accessories, tribes, standard issue, optics, dressed to kill, facemasks, modesty, mobile home, headgear, holywear, and death. There is no index, bibliography, or page numbers.
