Incredible photos of Europe's primal traditions

New, 27 comments

Photographer Charles Fréger spent two winters travelling through Europe, unearthing the deep connection some Europeans still have with pagan traditions. The resulting collection is a stunning set of photos depicting traditional "wild man" costumes. National Geographic published a selection of Fréger's work this month, along with an accompanying article explaining the roots of the wild men of Europe.
