Himba Women III

The Himba, in Namibia in particular, still live a very traditional lifestyle.  This alone is fascinating.  The women, with the exception of some added modern ‘jewellery’ (note the plastic bottle rings on this young girls arms) dress as they always have.  This I greatly admire.

This is my favourite portrait from my Himba Women story.  This young girl and I could not communicate with words, but we understood each other.  Her look told me so much.
