A moving photographic journey into the vanishing culture of the Maasai warriors of Kenya and Tanzania, including never-before-seen ceremonies.
About the Author
Elizabeth L. Gilbert moved to Africa to work as a news photographer in 1991. Her pictures have appeared in Time, Newsweek, Men’s Journal, Life, and The New York Times, as well as numerous major European publications. Her photographs of the Maasai have been awarded prizes for portrait and reportage by the Society of Publication Designers.
"A skilled, intimate, and remarkable portrayal of an enigmatic culture that goes well beyond the usual stereotypical treatment of the Maasai. Gilbert''s work is a valuable contribution to the honorable photographic tradition of tribal studies."
