Northern Kenya 2019

Portraits / March 2020

This set was taken ten years since my first extensive travels through the Samburu, Turkana, Rendille and Pokot communities of northern Kenya. That trip was a formative experience for me: as well as meeting my long term guide and friend Mohammed, I had come to know and love these communities and the environment that shaped their way of life. Following many years of drought, weather events on this trip sadly proved equally extreme, including floods, landslides and loss of life. Yet somehow, the tribal groups celebrated at Lake Turkana as this year of opposites came to a close.
