"Wolfe's photos offer a striking illustration of that desire."
From the Maasai of Kenya to the Kayapo of Brazil and the Dani of Indonesia, photographer Wolfe has traveled around the world to capture the remaining indigenous peoples in all the startling beauty of their native garb: startling in the bright red and yellow body paint of the Huli warrior, in a Yanomamo woman's face pierced with narrow bones, the scarification of a male Bumi's torso, the geometrical paintings on the buttocks of a Surma couple, and the full-body tatoos of Polynesia.
