Bernatzik CONRU, Kevin ; Coleman, D. A. ; Byer, Doris South Pacific

Hugo A. Bernatzik travelled for over a year, between 1932 and 1933, to the Solomon Islands, New Guinea and Bali. His lively and fascinating account of the trip and his observations on myths, customs and traditions of the people he encountered were published as a book: Südsee: Travels in the South Seas, soon after translated into English (1935). A large and careful selection of the best photographs, reproduced here in duotone and in large format, has been made for South Pacific . Bernatzik's images are always informative. But the images reproduced in the book have to be appreciated especially for their high aesthetic value and their capacity to bring to life the spirit of the peoples portrayed. The photographs, full of movement and life, depict fascinating actions such as the turtle hunt in the Solomon Islands reef or seafaring on an oroum, a Papuan double canoe. Everyday life in villages and the habits proper to each particular group come to life in the photographs. Finally, an astounding series of portraits gives us an idea of the wonderful adornments worn by the people of the South Seas. The text by Bernard de Grunne gives us full insight into Bernatzik's life and recounts his travel to the South Pacific as well as the outcome of his research.
