For over thirty years, Chris Rainier has been in search of the meaning of the mask. What began as a thorough visual photographic documentation of the traditional mask rituals of New Guinea developed into a voyage of discovery that took him around the world photographing traditional masks and mask traditions – from the steppes of Mongolia to the jungles of South America and to the Alpine villages of modern Europe – so creating one of the most definitive documentations of traditional masks as they are still danced today.
We are thrilled to welcome Chris here at Hatchards this evening to celebrate Earth Day 2020 with an illustrated presentation of Mask.
£10 tickets available in the shop and online here.
Rainier was a former photographic assistant to Ansel Adams, the noted landscape photographer and conservationist and is now Director of The Cultural Sanctuaries Foundation and Fellow of The Royal Geographical Society in London.
