In the Omo Valley, Ethiopia. I was exploring a Hamar village trying to take photos of village life. As I prepared to take photos, this young man automatically tried to remove his Mercedes Benz top as he assumed that I might think that the shirt wasn’t “authentic”. But I indicated to him that the shirt was OK; if that is what he normally wore then that was plenty authentic to me, and plenty interesting enough!
The dry, barren, and rocky landscape of Spitzkoppe in Namibia. Weathering has sculpted interesting shapes into the rocks and, juxtaposed against the night sky, provided an excuse to camp here and photograph the area in August 2015.
We were staying right up next to the Angolan border in northern Namibia. Great views of the river there. This Himba man sat next to a boulder by the river, not that far from Epupa Falls. He’s smiling now, but he was worried about the crocodiles!
