Photographer's Note

Ndebele women traditionally adorned themselves with a variety of ornaments, each symbolising her status in society. After marriage, dresses became increasingly elaborate and spectacular.

Married women wear neck hoops made of grass (called isigolwani) twisted into a coil and covered in beads, particularly for ceremonial occasions.
