Interview with Martin Harvey - Professional Wildlife Photographer
Masai jumping | The Masai, a Nilotic ethnic group of semi-nomadic people located in Kenya and northern Tanzania, are among the best known of African ethnic groups, due to their residence near the many game parks of East Africa, and their distinctive customs and dress.
The Himba wear little clothing, but the women are famous for covering themselves with otjize, a mixture of butter fat and ochre. The mixture gives their skins a reddish tinge. This symbolizes earth’s rich red color and the blood that symbolizes life, and is consistent with the Himba ideal of beauty.
