Hardcover. From 1962 until 1977 Riefenstahl had been living as the first white woman with a special permission issued by the Sudanese government in the remote valleys of the central Sudan among the mysterious Nuba tribe. She studied their way of life and recorded it on film and in pictures of unusual fascination for eternity. These picture documents hold a unique anthropological, ethnological, and cultural-historical importance due to the circumstances through which the Nuba's historical way of life is approaching its irreversible end, primarily through the advance of civilization.

The Last of the Nuba.

RIEFENSTAHL, Leni (1902-2003).

New York:: Harper Row, [1973]., 1973. First American edition. Folio. 208 pp. Color frontispieces, profusely color photo illustrated. Gilt-s tamped beige cloth, decorative endpapers, dust jacket. Nearly fine. ISBN: 0060135492 First American edition of amazing color photographs by Helene Bertha Amalie "Leni" Riefenstahl (1902 –2003), German film director, photographer, actress and dancer, best known for directing the Nazi Party propaganda film Triumph of the Will. Her prominence in the Third Reich and personal association with Adolf Hitler, destroyed her film career following Germany's defeat in World War II, after which she was arrested, but then released without any charges. Her photography on the Nuba tribe in the early 1970s resurrected her career, though not without some controversy due to her past. She had traveled many times to Africa to photograph the Nuba tribes in Sudan, with whom she sporadically lived, learning about their culture so she could photograph them more easily. She began a lifelong companionship with her cameraman Horst Kettner, who was 40 years her junior and assisted her with the photographs; they were together [and later married] from the time she was 60 and he was 20. She was granted Sudanese citizenship for her services to the country, becoming the first foreigner to receive a Sudanese passport. Her books with photographs of the tribes were published in 1974 and 1976 as The Last of the Nuba and The People of Kau and were both international bestsellers; she also sold her pictures to German magazines. The Art Director's Club of Germany awarded Leni a gold medal for the best photographic achievement of 1975. While heralded by many [Jonas Mekas, Eudora Welty of NY Times, Newsweek. . . ] as outstanding color photographs, they were harshly criticized by Susan Sontag, who claimed in a review that they were further evidence of Riefenstahl's "fascist aesthetics". In her later years, Riefenstahl became known for her longevity and physical stamina, along with her further accomplishment. At age 72, she began pursuing underwater photography after lying about her age to gain certification for scuba diving (she cut 20 years off her age). In 1978, she published a book of her below-water photographs, Korallengarten (Coral Gardens) followed by the 1990 book; Wunder unter Wasser (Wonder under Water).On 22 August 2002, her 100th birthday, Riefenstahl released a film called Impressionen unter Wasser (Underwater Impressions), an idealized documentary of life in the oceans and her first film in over 25 years. At age 100, she was still photographing marine life and gained the distinction of being the world's oldest scuba diver. Riefenstahl was a member of Greenpeace for 8 years. She survived a helicopter crash in Sudan in 2000 while trying to learn the fates of her Nuba friends during the Sudanese civil war and was airlifted to a Munich hospital. She died at age 101 in her sleep, though she was suffering from cancer. - [Summarized from Wikipedia]
