All societies are 'tribal' to some degree in that there's a universal desire among humans to belong to a defined group. There is among us an urge to remember the ways of our ancestors and their traditions. In contemporary time, instead of bows and arrows we have cars that act as our ceremonial shields, defining us and the group we belong to. Modern Tribe was the working title for a potential photographic book that received numerous bites from publishers but ultimately remained unrealised. After certain investment of time and effort I moved on to other things but return to it now 25 yrs later.
