Description: Robin Hanbury-Tenison, one of the greatest explorers of our time, is a tireless champion of the rights of tribal people and, in the early years of his travels, was an obsessive photographer of their homelands as they were eroded by the modern world. This book is a series of photographs from his personal archives, taken during the 50s, 60s and 70s, which reveal beautiful insights into a vanished world. They were unearthed recently, many having not been looked at for fifty years.
