‘Hereros’ is the latest collection from Jim Naughton currently being exhibited at the Klompching Gallery in Brooklyn.
The collection features images of the Herero tribe in Namibia and how in this present day the residents dress in Victorian and paramilitary costumes. This style of dress represents the country’s early 20th century colonization by the Germans (images below).
London-based photographer Jim Naughten studied photography at the Arts Institute of Bournemouth in the UK. Naughten’s work has been featured in a number of exhibitions. This most recent series, Hereros, was published as a monograph by Merrell in March 2013.
