Portrait of a Masai warrior taken during my travels in Kenya.
During the post production process the colors were desaturated and elements of writing were added, creating a type of collage work that shows the pride and strength of these indigenous people of Kenya.
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.
