Portrait of a traditional but young San man taken during my travels in Namibia. This tribe represents the cradle of humankind. I was truly fascinated while I spent a couple of days living with these people in Southern Namibia. We went hunting with them, learnt how to make fire the ancient way and danced an sang with them. It was a very memorable and unique experience for me, which I will never forget.
During the post production process the colors were desaturated, creating a type of collage work that shows the pride and beauty of these indigenous people of Namibia and Southern Africa.
I have travelled to many rural places in Namibia, Botswana and Kenya to capture the spirit of people who still live a very primordial life – visited the Himba, Bushmen and Massai.
And I truly felt inspired when I could connect with them through the eyes of my camera.
When portraying the people of Africa my aim is to show how I see things and what my impression was in that moment when the photograph was taken. “Modern society doesn’t stop and the old rituals and appearances are soon fading from view. So I want to preserve the original and tribal look of these people that are the heritage of the African continent.”
This is what the collection of my Tribal portraits is about.
