Photographer's Note

He is young and strong and serious because there are new responsibilities. The ochre on his face tells that he has just come through the rituals and ceremonies and that he has passed them all. He is now a man. The old clothes have been burnt and he is into a new life.

The combination of ISO, shutter speed and f-stop suggests how weak the light really was. Flash did not work because of the hard shadow that it cast and the D800 did marvelously well at the ISO of 6400.
