Tippi Benjamine Okanti Degré, daughter of French wildlife photographers Alain Degré and Sylvie Robert, was born in Namibia. During her childhood she befriended many wild animals, including a 28-year old elephant called Abu and a leopard nicknamed J&B. She was embraced by the Bushmen and the Himba tribespeople of the Kalahari, who taught her how to survive on roots and berries, as well as how to speak their language.
in before tumblr screams about cultural appropiation
This doesn’t even count as cultural appropriation
This isn’t a person robbing a culture, to hell with the others
This is a child born right next to that culture
Who was embraced by the people and taught how to do some of the things they do
Which is not the same as cultural appropriation
No cultural appropriation. Just something really beautiful.
I love the picture where she’s cuddling a frog.

Soft Watch At The Moment Of First Explosion By Salvador Dali
Also known as Soft Watches, work (oil on canvas, 26.3 x 36.5 cm, The Museum of Modern Art, New York) is characteristic of the creative process that Dalí had developed since his meeting in 1929 with the Surrealists. The “paranoiac-critical method,” in 1930 indicated in the text Donkey rotten (No. 1 of the journal Surrealism in the service of the revolution) and resonates with the work of Lacan (magazine articles and thesis on Minotaur the paranoia in dealing with personality published in 1932), is intended method “active” ownership-transforming reality through a system where personal memories, fantasies, desires and their interpretations have an important role. Heterogeneous materials gathered and kept their own character in an accurate and realistic pictorial representation, but at the same time, are absorbed in multiple combinations and symbolic.
