Wilder Mann series, Charles Freger

From Charles Fréger's "Wilder Mann" series: this is blowing my mind

Charles Fréger's remarkable Wilder Mann project, documenting actual pagan costumes and rituals from 18 (and counting) European countries. Here: Wilder Mann 29 by Charles Freger

Wilder Mann is a project Charles Fréger has worked on for several years now; after picking up on a trend of “wild man” costumes used in traditional ceremonies and pageants, he travelled to eighteen European countries photographing the different iterations in each one. Wilder Mann shows men dressed in shaggy goat skins, prickly twigs, black hoods, fearsome face paint.

From Bansko in Bulgaria, the masked Babugeiri, dressed in goat skins, hold a procession on 1 January. They originally symbolized fertility. Charles Fréger visited 18 European countries in search of the mythological figure of the Wild Man. His strange and beautiful photobook, Wilder Mann: the Image of the Savage, explores human fascination with myth, ritual and tradition.

Stunning image of a grim reaper/Shinigami

i like this image. The fabrics are reminiscent of traditional and historical dessert nomad dress and textiles and yet the sunglasses remind me of a modern, even futuristic 'Mad Max' image of the Nomad. Post-apocalyptic Nomads are an interesting image to explore
