9780500544464: The Lost Tribes of Tierra del Fuego: Selk'nam, Yamana, Kawésqar

A striking photographic testimonial to the people of Tierra del Fuego, a society defined by magic, spirits, and communion with nature

A German missionary sent to Tierra del Fuego in 1919 by his congregation, Martin Gusinde was a major Americanist and ethnographer from the first half of the twentieth century. While his mission was ostensibly to convert the native peoples among whom he lived, Gusinde did just the opposite, eventually becoming one of the first Westerners ever to be initiated into the various sacred rites of the inhabitants of Tierra del Fuego. In the course of four sojourns made between 1919 and 1924, from the canals of Western Patagonia to the great island of Tierra del Fuego, he learned and wrote about the Kawésqar, Yamana, and Selk’nam peoples. Gradually, the missionary became an anthropologist.

Fascinated by what he saw, Gusinde took more than one thousand photographs, all produced using a portable darkroom. Gusinde captured some truly extraordinary images that his contemporaries were unable to: feather-clad bodies sporting high headdresses made of bark, wrapped up in guanaco furs, or entirely covered with ritual paint, populating a landscape battered by wind, rain, and snow―the heart of a natural world that Darwin had celebrated, not long before, for its wildness. A dazzling visual experience, Gusinde’s photographs are a monument to the memory of the Tierra del Fuego people as well as an exceptional anthropological document. 100+ tritone illustrations

About the Author:

Martin Gusinde (1886–1969) was a German missionary who became a distinguished Americanist and ethnographer noted especially for his anthropological work on the native peoples of Tierra del Fuego.

Review:

“what we see is the human body transformed, redesigned into representations of spirits”
- Design Observer

“A very important work not to be missed. . . . The book features a selection of 1,200 images that were recently digitized from Gusinde’s original negatives and prints housed in the Anthropos Institute in Germany. The “bewitching quality” of images taken between 1919 and 1924 brings these extinct cultures alive with marvelous portraits, some with wonderful smiling faces, which are rich in cultural and religious activities with all the valuable ethnographic details and beauty of a landscape and its original people.”
- Choice

“Arresting . . . . Not only pays tribute to Gusinde’s images, but the profound cultural loss they represent.”
- The Explorers Journal

“Photography was an important aspect of Gusinde’s scientific and humanistic endeavor, and The Lost Tribes of Tierra del Fuego is the first book to address this aspect of his work in its own right. . . . Bewitchingly surreal.”
- The New York Review of Books

“Extraordinary. . . . A memorial to a people and a culture that were vanished from this earth.”
- Crave

“A mesmerizing collection of photographs by the German priest and anthropologist Martin Gusinde, made in the course of four expeditions between 1918 and 1924... Gusinde's approach was both respectful and scientific; his pictures of wild costumes and total nudity alike are as rigorously framed as those his compatriots Bernd and Hilla Becher later made of disappearing industrial architecture―they share a taxonomic consideration that rewards the viewer with a stern but involving rhythm.”
- The New York Times Book Review

Descripción Thames Hudson Ltd, United Kingdom, 2015. Hardback. Estado de conservación: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. The German missionary Martin Gusinde arrived in Tierra del Fuego in 1919. Although his initial mission was to convert the Indians among whom he lived, Gusinde in fact ended up doing the very opposite: he was to become one of the first Westerners to be initiated into the Indians sacred rites. Over the course of five years, he studied the Alakaluf, Yamana and Selknam peoples, travelling from the canals of Western Patagonia to the great island of Tierra del Fuego. Gradually, the missionary became an anthropologist. Gusindes isolation on this land at the end of the earth made his approach highly unique. Fascinated by what he saw, he took over a thousand photographs, all produced using a portable darkroom. The portraits he captured constitute a kind of genealogical and social tree. Unlike his contemporaries, Gusinde photographed mainly the body in extraordinary manifestations: feather-clad figures sporting high head-dresses made of bark, wrapped up in guanaco furs, or entirely covered with ritual paint Captured in a landscape battered by wind and rain or covered in snow, in the heart of a natural world that Darwin celebrated for its wild and rough aspects, and framed in poses codified by ritual, these Indians bear witness to a society on the wane. Magic, spirits, communion with nature and initiatory rites draw the outlines of a world in which appearances vie with reality. The exceptional circumstances of the photos creation coupled with the personality and engagement of their author make these images a unique testimonial. Nº de ref. de la librería AA29780500544464
