Jim Naughten is a London-based photographer whose work is full of perfect contrasts.

Beautifully staged but still natural, personal but still distant, sparse but still complex – these images have a lot going on, despite their simplicity. From portraits of soldiers and kids wearing gas-masks to fantastical images of people and their auras, Naughten covers a lot of subjects.

We're focusing on his series called Hereros, a project that saw him photographing portraits of people belonging to the Herero tribe of Namibia. In the Herero tribe "residents wear Victorian era dresses and paramilitary costume as a direct result and documentation of its early 20th century German colonization".

These portraits aren't meant to be traditional nor are they shots of everyday life. What they are though, is traditional in an old-fashioned portraiture sense: they're formal and dignified and regal. These images, and these subjects, are totally majestic.
