YaKalaBen by Namsa Leuba is the photographer's latest collection of pictures depicting the visually compelling attire worn by various tribal members. Leuba does an amazing job of capturing the abundance of vibrant colors present in both the natural surroundings and tribal garments.

YaKalaBen is full of pictures that complicate the notion of savagery. The members depicted in these images appear both primitive and divine, encouraging the audience to question their impressions of the privileged or proper individual.

Unlike contemporary fashion, these garments tie the individual to their natural landscapes. Both nature and human appear to be in sync with one another, indicative of the relationship that these people have with their surrounding landscape -- reciprocal admiration.
