Conflict and costume: the Herero tribe of Namibia - in pictures

"Men and women of the Herero tribe feature in a new book by photographer Jim Naughten, published by Merrell. Featuring traditional costumes fashioned on the influence of German missionaries and traders of the late 19th century, Naughten’s dramatic portraits reveal Namibia’s colonial history. An exhibition of the photographs will open at the Margaret Street Gallery, London on 5 March 2013"
