Photographer's Note

The Himba people or Ovahimba are Herero in origin, part of a group of Bantu-speaking people who migrated from East Africa in the 16th century. The Himba split from the main Herero group, remaining in the northerly Kaokoland/Kunene Region while the rest of the Herero moved southwards. They are one of the last semi-nomadic desert-dwelling groups in Africa, living in the arid regions of north-western Namibia and southern Angola, often leaving their settlements to find better grazing for their cattle and goats.
