KALAHARI | BOTSWANA "We visited the San Bushmen of the Kalahari with Ralph Bousfield, who had grown up with them and spoke their click language. He explained to us that only one hundred Bushmen out of a population of twenty-two thousand still lived traditionally. From historic reports we understand that the Botswana government had forced them off their lands and taken away their hunting rightsโ€”an important part of their survival that also lies at the heart of their culture."

HADZA | TANZANIA "Today, there are only three hunter-gatherer groups left in Africa: the Bushmen of the Kalahari, the Pygmies of Central Africa, and the Hadza of Tanzania. Our introduction to the Hadza came through Andrew Uronu, a Tanzanian guide who had visited the tribe over many years. " In this image: "A young girl collects the fruit of the baobab tree, one of the staples of their diet.

OMO RIVER PEOPLES | ETHIOPIA "Ethiopiaโ€™s Omo valley is one of the most remote wildernesses in Africaโ€” and a place close to our hearts. After many visits over the last thirty years, on foot and via four-wheel drive, we decided to penetrate the Omo River by boat. Lale Biwa, our Kara guide, answered our calling. Laleโ€™s people, the Kara, are the smallest of eight tribes in the region; they number fewer than two thousand and live in four small villages of domed huts. They are renowned for their colorful face and torso painting, designed to attract the eye of the opposite sex during courtship season, which begins after the rains. Each morning Kara men went down to the river to paint their bodies and came back to our tents to surprise us with fresh new designs, waiting eagerly to be photographed before they went off to court young women. After rigorous courtship dancing, the designs wore off, only to be refreshed each morning with another innovative pattern. This body painting is one of the oldest art forms in Africa; evidence of its origins is found in early African cave paintings and rock engravings dating back to the Stone Age." In this image "Performing the courtship dance, young Kara men form long lines and leap high in the air to impress the admiring young women."

"The climax of the Ngoun festival occurs with the beating of the royal slit drum, historically a call to war.

๐Ÿ’›SAMBURU PASSAGES - KENYA ๐Ÿ’› The most important ceremony for the Samburu of northern Kenya is the Lmongo Surwa Lo Layiok, โ€œWhite Bull for Boys.โ€ This occurs just once every fourteen years when a new generation of warriors is initiated, causing all generations of men to move up in the hierarchy. In 2005, we journeyed to Mount Nyiro, the sacred mountain of the Samburu. The ceremony was held on top of the mountain where they felt closest to their god, Nkai. As we reached the summit at eight thousand feet, we saw the elders seated in debate. Women were traditionally not allowed to witness these events, and some of the elders ordered us to descend immediately. After a long discussion, they permitted us to stay because they wanted the ceremony to be photographedโ€”perhaps for the last time, as the younger generation was moving away from traditional practices.

"In West Africa, many people believe that the spirits of our ancestors and the natural world determine what happens in oneโ€™s life. In the large agricultural communities of Burkina Faso, people often believe that when they cultivate the land, they destroy its equilibrium. To heal nature, they call on masks channeling the spirits, acting as mediators between man and God. At seasonal masquerades, the masks are danced to restore balance to the world, so that the coming season of cultivation and harvests will be successful."

MURSI MEMORIAL - ETHIOPIA - "We arrived in Kayaye, a Mursi village in the Omo Valley, to the deafening sound of gunshots and the frenetic charging of cattle.

WEST AFRICAN MASKS - BURKINA FASO "The Wan Zega, or โ€œTall Red Masks,โ€ are worn by the Boulsa Mossi in eastern Burkina Faso. Made of bark fibers from the sacred false mahogany tree, the masks dance aggressively, carrying a long whip to drive away evil. Their eerie high-pitched โ€œvoicesโ€ are produced by sucking air through a green leaf stalk clamped between the teeth of the maskers. They may appear at funerals and initiations, and also as entertainment on market day." #BURKINAFASO #AficanCeremonies #AfricanTwilight This image is from our NEW book "African Twilight : The Vanishing Rituals and Ceremonies of the African Continent" ๐ŸŒ UPCOMING EVENTS ๐ŸŒ ๐Ÿ‡บ๐Ÿ‡ธSanta Ana California: Exhibition @bowersmuseum Until January 6 2019 . . . ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡งLondon : December 7 @tribalartlondon RSVP: art@TribalGatherinLondon.com . . . ๐Ÿ‡ฟ๐Ÿ‡ฆ Cape Town : December 15 @thkgallery ๐ŸŽŸtel: +27 76 367 6387 or www.thkphotography.com . . ๐Ÿ’›To Order the book please see @amazon and all good bookshops. . . ๐Ÿ’›African Twilight is proudly published by @rizzolibooks . . ๐Ÿ’›Limited Edition Prints available from photokunst #AfricanCeremonies #AfricanTwilight #burkinafaso . . ๐Ÿ’› A F R I C A ๐Ÿ’› . . . #art #africanculture #africa #africanart #african_portraits #blackisbeautiful #carolbeckwith #angelafisher #wanderlust #igtravel #instatravel #travelgram #travel #nationalgeographic #natgeo #worldface #loves_people #instawild #adventure #natgeotravel #travelphotography #people_infinity

"Lunar masks belonging to the Bwaba society come out only in the dark of night when the new moon rises. Their role is to purify the village, ensure a good harvest, and promote the fertility of young women. The antennae-like sticks on the lunar masks communicate with the power of the moon and reveal a direct relationship with the ancestors. The maskers use a long staff to vault high into the air; the belief is that they thus project themselves toward the moon, into the invisible world, to capture its power. The masker is attached by a cord to a guardian who protects him."

"We visited the San Bushmen of the Kalahari with Ralph Bousfield, who had grown up with them and spoke their click language. He explained to us that only one hundred Bushmen out of a population of twenty-two thousand still lived traditionally.
