Photographer's Note

I visited a Himba village near Sesfontein. There I saw this young married women with this particular look in her eyes.
These nomadic people of Namibia use grinded red stone mixed with animal fat to cover their skin. Very interesting visit it was.
Sadly there was no interaction between me and the adult Himba people, not that I didn't try. The guide was not willing to translate. The only interaction was between the children and me...what fun that was!
