A compilation of the Eenkuwa Cultural Group from Northern Namibia during their performance at a regional culture festival in 2012. The girls, competing in the upper primary category, are ages 15 up to 17. They are of the Owambo tribe and more specifically the Kwambi sub-tribe. The performance consists of a drama followed by 3 dances that are specific to Kwambi traditional culture. The drama and singing is all in the Oshiwambo language. This performance won the girls first place at the competition.

Twenty-nine-year-old Zuma Katjiuonga lives two lives. In Namibia's capital Windhoek, he works as a lighting technician for a regional TV broadcaster. He leads a modern life and has been in a relationship for two years. But he also belongs to the nomadic Himba tribe and feels bound to its traditions.It's estimated that around 7,000 Himba live in Namibia and Angola today. Most of Africa's nomadic tribes have long since settled down. Today there are just eight large nomadic tribes on the continent, like the Massai. But they, too, have to balance a life between the modern world and traditional customs. For more go to http://www.dw.de/program/global-3000/s-11487-9798

I put out a video recently talking about how to start moving your photography career in a particular direction. I asked myself what sort of photography really spoke to me, and in my case it was pretty obvious. It was people photography. Portraits. Especially portraits of people from different contexts and with different stories to my own. My photography heroes are Steve McCurry, Sebastiao Salgado, Jimmy Nelson and Joey L for his work in Africa, India and Syria. I understand that it’s a different era now and that grabbing a job at National Geographic is not a realistic option. I also know that no one is coming to knock on my door to hire me for this sort of work just because I would love to do it. There are no favours in this industry.
