Northern Kenya

Portraits / April 2009

Twenty images from remote societies in the far north of Kenya, including the Samburu, Rendille, Turkana and Pokot.

This project involved 6 weeks hitching through Kenya's arid and remote north; an experience not without it's complications as guns are deeply embedded into the fabric of day to day life. The nomadic and semi-nomadic groups featured in this series, in some cases engaged in armed conflict with each other, share a similar beauty and vibrancy in their appearance to those of Ethiopia's Omo Valley, just to the north.
