Blogging Is Overrated

Wilder Mann

Charles Fréger traveled across eighteen European countries from Finland to Greece from 2010 to 2011 for his series Wilder Mann. In search of the “wild man,” Fréger systematically cataloged people in elaborate costumes used during traditional rituals often pertaining to the seasonal cycle, fertility, life and death. The exhibition at the Gallery at Hermès on Madison Avenue in New York City opens April 11th. A complementary exhibition is on view at the Yossi Milo Gallery in Chelsea from April 11th through May 18th. The book, Wilder Mann, is available in four languages.
