Vulnerable by Olga Michi
Vulnerable—Tradition & Modernity: The dedicated young photographer Olga Michi visited indigenous people around the world, taking one-of-a-kind portraits of them. These images both reveal the essence of these people and show their current life situations.
In this stunning compilation of 164 images, photographer Olga Michi brings a new kind of portrait photography to endangered ethnic groups around the world. Her striking images seen in Vulnerable, present individuals against a black background, dramatically lit to focus on their dress, accessories, and individual expression.
These indigenous peoples represent some of the most unique cultures in a hyper-globalized world, and an emotional reminder that they are our fellow human beings and singular personalities. And starkly, the rifles, cartridge cases, plastic objects and cell phones that also appear in Michi’s pictures acknowledge the fragility of their way of life.
