Masai shepherd

June 22, 2013


This young masai man spoke English – and was our guide in the village.

Serengeti National Park, Tanzania. 2012.

    A fine portrait. Reminds me of a graduate student I once met.

      He was a nice guy. I really admire these people living as nomads with their cattle to a large extent as they have lived for generations.

    A lovely portrait with beautiful colours. The Masai shepherd seems very relaxed and at peace with himself.

      My impression is that they were proud people – proud of their traditions and proud of their (sometimes quite harsh) life.

    Flott portrett også dette!
    Hvordan vil han se ut om 40 år?

      Han vil nok stadig leve, spise kød, passe dyrene og skræmme løverne væk 😉
