Bernatzik. South Pacific (Imago Mundi series)
by Kevin Conru
Publisher's Description
South Pacific: the beauty of a paradise lost captured through 150 extraordinary photographs taken in the early '30s by Austrian writer and ethnographer Hugo Bernatzik. Bernatzik traveled for over a year, between 1932 and 1933, to the Solomon Islands, New Guinea and Bali. His lively and fascinating account of the trip and his observations on myths, customs and traditions of the people he encountered were published as a book, Sudsee: Travels in the South Seas, soon after translated into English (1935). Of the thousands of pictures he took, only a small part were published at that time and in a small format, mainly in support of the field evidence. A larger and careful selection of the best photographs, reproduced here in duotone an din large format, has been made for South Pacific.
