Award winning photographer Daniele Tamagni, best known for one of my favorite fashion books, The Gentlemen of Bacongo, has just released his latest work, Fashion Tribes: Global Street Style, where Tamagni shows the stylized world of the international fashion subcultures.

Through documentary shots and staged portraiture, Tamagni captures images of heavy metal rockers in Botswana, hipsters in Johannesburg, dandies in the Congo, female wrestlers in Bolivia, “bling bling” youth in Cuba, and Punks in Burma.

Often marginalized on the fringes of their own societies and looking to stand out, Fashion Tribes shows the strong resilience of these individuals who fight back and express their creativity and joy through personal style.

Along with the seven subcultures featured in Fashion Tribes, and preface by Rosario Dawson, are essays by leading experts in fashion, art, anthropology, and sociology that explore all facets of style.
