Entry Description

Tracing an African tribe’s struggle to survive in the Kenyan desert. Capturing the complexities that come with ritual and tradition in a technology driven world, these images are often full of contrast. The land, dry with water is rich with oil. The people, rigorously true to tradition, and customs are often seen holding mobile phones and contemporary weapons of warfare.
