Get inspired this weekend and buy African Twilight, the new book by two very dear friends at African Ceremonies. Carol Beckwith & Angela Fisher have spent over 25 years documenting vanishing tribes and ceremonies in Africa. Their first book was one of my first ever inspirations and reasons for starting my journey in jewellery.
African Twilight is from two pioneering documentary photographers of African tribal cultures and ceremonies - a world that is quickly vanishing before our very eyes.
Now, nearly two decades after these photographer's landmark African Ceremonies and with a greater sense of urgency, this book completes the journey, covering disappearing rituals and ceremonies from some of the most inaccessible corners of the African continent, to create the definitive statement on this subject. No other book like this exists or can ever be created again, as more than 40 percent of what has been documented here has already vanished.
For the last 15 years of their four decades of African fieldwork, world-renowned photographers Carol Beckwith and Angela Fisher have continued their journey across Africa, seeking out remote communities to record the sacred ceremonies, powerful art forms, and boundless creativity of the people living there today. This ground-breaking book is a testament to these vanishing moments and peoples. African Twilight is a celebration of the powerful artistry and boundless creativity of Africa's cultural heritage for audiences worldwide, transporting viewers into a world of connections between individual and community, body and soul, land and people.
