Natural Fashion

I should be working... or running. Have I mentioned that I'm signed in to run the NYC Marathon? No I haven't. So I should be running or working, but I'm not. Instead, I'm looking through Hans Silvester's book, Natural Fashion: Tribal Decoration from Africa. I bought it yesterday, finally after however many months of saying to myself "taylor, you gotta get that book".
In it, Silvester unveils the incredible body painting and elaborate decorations of the Surma and Mursi tribes of Omo, one of the wildest places in Africa bordering Ethiopia, Sudan, and Kenya. These photos are insane.

I love it.
