Hugo Bernatzik (1897-1953) is well known among anthropologists and ethnographers. His photography from the 1930s taken during research trips abroad provide an unfiltered view of various native populations in the South Pacific and has rarely been seen or published. The people, cultures, and customs of the South Pacific islands would all be dramatically altered in the decade after Bernatzik's visits, as World War II spread over the region. Bernatzik's photos provide the last uncorrupted images of most of the cultures affected, from Bali to New Guinea and the Solomon Islands. (from Amazon).
