Samburu warrior. Portrait shot in Northern Kenya near the village of Sereolipi. This image is part of a series documenting the Samburu tribe as they begin to assimilate more and more with western influences and values. Part of tradition of nomadic hunting and gathering the Samburu are entering into the 21st century facing many new problems and concerns for their young as well as for their unique and collective way of life. As a nation of proud warriors they seek to preserve their cultural footprint but also want to protect their traditions while knowing that they must embrace the dichotomy of education and modern healthcare along the way to do so.
