Michael Tummings : Hidden Book | Huntsman Figure

One of the coolest projects we've seen in awhile; British artist and photographer Michael Tummings documents the 'tribal' culture of hunters in their environments in a beautiful monograph titled "Hidden". Michael has also created a porcelain figure (limited to 25 pieces) series titled 'Huntsman' in a collaboration with German company Nymphenburg Porcelain Manufactory, a company begun in 1747.  The figure is based largely on the subjects of the book, created to incredible detail using centuries-old techniques.

Michael Tumming’s series “Hidden” is a photographic study of a group of people and their culture going beyond the portraiture of individuals and presenting them as a kind of tribe. Tummings has followed the hunt throughout Europe (England, Romania, Spain, Germany,…) over five years. Travelling widely in season, the hunts he experienced were social events.
