March 09, 2017

For his Ancient Marks and Tattooing series, Rainier explores the traditional markings and tattoos in several different cultures. Some of these tattoos have cultural, religious, or just significance of belonging to a certain tribe or group. This body of work is part of the Ancient Marks project, through photography and text, communicates man’s need to adorn the sacred geography of the human body. Here’s a short video with some of Chris’ photographs from this series.
