    A result of photographer Charles Freger’s months traveling in Europe researching costumes and customs. “More than actual carnivals or folklore, what I was trying to represent was the community of men. Rather than offer an anthropologists report on these disguises, the idea is to pay homage to the beauty of these living sculptures spawned by rituals that remain vital." In a very civil way, he reminds us of the animal within.

The Wilder Mann: The Image of the Savage. French photographer Charles Freger visited rural mountainous farming communities in eighteen European countries to photograph centuries-old rituals where people literally put themselves into the skin of the 'savage.' In celebrations of the seasons, fertility, life, and death, people become a bear, a goat, a stag, a man of straw, or a devil.
