HIMBA MOTHER AND CHILD 3 by Michael Sheridan

Currently unavailable for purchase

Available to buy on…

The Himba People live in Northern Namibia and Southern Angola, and are one of the last pastoral groups living in Southern Africa. Himba ladies are renowned for their smooth, reddish skin, and even the elderly are wrinkle-free. The effect is achieved by daily applications of an ochre-colored clay mixed with ash and animal fat. This lady was photographed at Epupa Falls, Northern Namibia on the Angola border.
