Hibiki Kobayashi

by Hibiki Kobayashi
Publisher's Description
Successfully revisiting the strategies of Irving Penn and Richard Avedon, Hibiki Kobayashi has created a group of portraits of the world's indigenous peoples. Set against a white studio-backdrop, these self-possessed people confront the viewer with the dislocations of our world and theirs, the constant encroachment of overpopulation and ever increasing environmental damage. Kobayashi's unsentimental and unflinching view leaves us to wonder about the future of these people, the few remaining out of the reach of the new global economy.
