Survival’s 2019 calendar celebrates 50 years of fighting for tribal peoples
Survival International, the global movement for tribal peoples, is releasing a special edition of its annual calendar to mark its 50th anniversary in 2019.
Next year’s “We, The People” calendar features stunning portraits of indigenous people by some of the world’s leading photographers, including Timothy Allen, Steve McCurry, Yann Arthus-Bertrand, George Rodger and many others.
And each one also comes with a free desk calendar with a beautiful image by legendary photographer Sebastião Salgado.
The images give an insight into tribal people’s largely self-sufficient and extraordinarily diverse ways of life.
Among the images are Mindima men from New Guinea wearing ceremonial feathers and animal pelts; an underwater shot of a boy from one of Malaysia’s “sea gypsy” tribes; and the now world-famous aerial shot of an uncontacted tribe in the Amazon.
Survival International was founded in 1969 by a group of people appalled by the genocide of Amazon Indians detailed in a Sunday Times exposé, which featured powerful images from the acclaimed photographer Don McCullin.
It exists to prevent the annihilation of tribal peoples and to give them a platform to speak to the world so they can bear witness to the genocidal violence, slavery and racism they face on a daily basis.
Stephen Corry, Director of Survival, said today: “Powerful images have always been at the heart of our fight for tribal peoples’ survival. We are delighted to have gathered so many beautiful images to reflect the past 50 years of Survival’s vital work, and I hope that they will energize people to get behind our cause.”
Calendars are £13.99 and available from Survival’s shop
