The latest exhibition at Los Angeles’s Annenberg Space for Photography presents the work of several photographers who have depicted indigenous cultures throughout the world, from Tibet to Borneo to South Dakota. Called “No Strangers: Ancient Wisdom in a Modern World,” the group exhibition is guest curated by Wade Davis, an anthropologist, author and photographer whose work is also included in the show.

Other photographers featured in the exhibition, which is open through February 24, 2013, include Carol Beckwith & Angela Fisher, Chris Johns, Lynn Johnson, Steve McCurry, Randy Olson, Chris Rainier and Hamid Sardar. Images from several other photographers are also part of the show, as is an original, short documentary about the work of the featured photographers. Several lectures featuring exhibited photographers are also taking place throughout the run of the show.For those who can’t make it to the exhibition, the Annenberg Space has also produced a catalogue.
