"It took Kobayashi 10 years to find and shoot the vanishing clans in Tribe. The result is striking, raw."
—Vibe

Meet the men, women, and children of the world's vanishing indigenous tribes as you've never seen them before. Acclaimed Japanese photographer Hibiki Kobayashi's exceedingly rich, huge tritone portraits of the wanderers, the lost ones, the refugees, and the exiled are boldly presented by the renowned art director Fabien Baron.

In the spirit of Avedon's classic In the American West, and Irving Penn's legendary portraits of portraits of indigenous peoples of Peru, New Guinea, and Morocco, Kobayashi photographs his subjects against a stark white background to reveal in striking detail the tribes' adornments, clothes, postures, and, ultimately, their sublime identities. Baron's audacious full-page bleeds and Tribe's gigantic trim size envelop the viewer with more than one hundred images taken in the remotest regions of Asia, the Middle East, Africa, South America, and the Pacific Rim.

Hibiki Kobayashi was born in Japan in 1955 and has been a professional photographer since age twenty-nine. Widely acclaimed in both the fine arts and fashion worlds, he has been photographing tribes at risk since 1990. Kobayashi has taken more than 3000 portraits in this ongoing project, and has traveled extensively to the furthest reaches of the globe.

Fabien Baron has been called one of today's most revolutionary and influential art directors. Baron engineered the award-winning relaunch of Harper's Bazaar, and now directs high profile advertising campaigns for Hugo Boss, Issey Miyake, Giorgio Armani, Valentino, and Prada. Baron has been consulting creative director at Calvin Klein since 1992, and continues to serve as creative director at Harper's Bazaar. Baron is also president of Baron & Baron.

Peter Beard, an iconoclastic photographer diarist and filmmaker, has exhibited his photography and collage work internationally. Beard is the author of Diary (Libro Port, 1993); and The End of the Game, (Chronicle, 1988). Born in New York, Beard moved to Kenya in the early 1960s.
