Nomads of the Dawn: The Penan of the Borneo Rainforest
Thursday, January 24th, 2013 6:30-8:00pm

Photographer David Hiser will share his 1993 work with the Penan hunter-gathers in the deep forests of Borneo. Published in the book, Nomads of the Dawn, it was part of the last comprehensive documentation of their unique society before it began to yield to outside influences.  Nomads of the Dawn shows a lifestyle once lived by all mankind, which is now almost gone from the face of the earth.
