Portland, Oregon commercial photographer Jānis Miglavs notes, “What started in 1999 as a disappointment at seeing one of my images on a billboard has evolved, over time, into the photographic illustrations included in the upcoming Camerawork Gallery exhibition as well as a book.”

Wanting to do more than just make money with his work, Miglavs embarked on an 18-year journey to learn the stories, myths and archetypal dreams from Africa’s most remote tribes. He had learned what Anthropologists and DNA tell us, that we—all modern humans—are distant descendants of Sapiens who walked out of Africa some 60,000 years go.
