Maraini: Acts of Photography, Acts of Love

Maraini: Acts of Photography, Acts of Low is an extraordinary selection of the photography of Fosco Maraini in a beautifully printed, multilanguage, oversized hardcover edition. Maraini's career as an ethnologist, photographer, filmmaker, mountaineer, writer and professor spans a period of more than 60 years. Perhaps best known for his work on Tibet and Japan, Maraini has extensively photographed the Karakoram and Hindu Kush mountain ranges of central Asia, Southeast Asia and the south of his native Italy. His work on Tibet and on the Ainu people of Northern Japan is perhaps the most important historical documentation of two lost cultures. Maraini features four essays in three languages (English, Italian, and Japanese) and more than 100 black-and-white and color images.
