Timothy Allen‘s work has taken him all around the globe. In the process, he has photographed some of the planet’s rarest and most interesting indigenous societies. It had been a while since I’d last ‘checked-in’ on his site, but it was one of his latest entries on the ‘Bayaka Honey Gatherer’ that took my interest. The image above is brilliant, as it shows one of the honey gatherers starting a smokey fire at the base of a tree. Below is the feature on the BBC ‘Human Planet’ series:

To match the image I’ve picked out one of my favourite songs. Elusive by Scott Matthews was released back in 2006, and even won him an Ivor Novello Award. With just one listen you will begin to understand why. The track picks up the smokiness of the picture with an absorbing musical production, and both have a hint of voodoo in them (but maybe that’s just me). Enjoy both artists, and visit their sites via their links below…
