Africa's traditional societies are dwindling, and these bold photographers have made it their mission to record the folkways of every tribe they can--especially the ways of ritual and observance. The ceremonies captured here--weddings, initiations, rites of passage, invocations of the spirit world--are spectacular, full of awe and exuberance. A relatively lengthy (for a postcard) caption accompanies each image.
