“Bernatzik, Southseas” (book about the travel photographer and anthropologist Bernatzik)


I worked for this publishing house in 2001/2002, when this book was first published. 5Continents specializes in art and photography books, and this is quite a unique one. Bernatzik was in fact a photographer, but also an anthropologist, and to fully understand his world (he lived in a time when photography was just at its beginning) I first had to read a lot of texts about anthropology and photography before I was able to approach the translation. Also, the culture of Papua New Guinea is so distant from ours that I had a hard time learning about their habits, folklore and other characteristics. But it eventually was a really good adventure, and it remains one of my greatest achievements.
