At first glance, Tribe by Lee Howell, a photographer based in Edinburgh, United Kingdom, looks like it documents people from indigenous tribes. Instead, the photo series is completely fabricated, if in an impressive way. It was created in order to showcase the latest creations of American costume designer Stacy Jansen. Focusing on traditional ethnic tribal dress from around the world, the garments were created for the film, theatre and television industry.

Set against stunning backdrops, Tribe by Lee Howell is a composite of existing photos and new ones. This first collection of images hones in on the Maasai tribe of Kenya and Tanzania on the African continent. From there, Howell will move onto Mongolia and what she has to offer.
