This is a collection of black and white photographs that could not be replicated today as they capture Sarawak's indigenous peoples on the cusp of the 'independence' and 'development' that was to change their world dramatically. Wong, 'The Father of Sarawak Photography' brings together his photographs collected from many years of living amongst tribal people in pursuit of his art. 30 pages of text including an introduction by Malcolm MacDonald and 80 photographs.

Condition: Very Good. Hardcover with a good dust jacket. The dust jacket is a little curled at the edges. The first and last free end papers have shadows from the dust jacket flaps. The binding is tight, the text is clear and there is very mild tanning throughout. A really decent copy
