In the last post I wrote about my time with the folks at the Kilgoris Project in Kenya. The project helps Maasai children to obtain a quality education – in short it gives them the leverage to choose their future. The Maasai are a proud people from Kenya and northern Tanzania. They are semi-nomadic herdsmen that are renown for their bravery. We met one old man that as a test of bravery killed a lion with just his spear, he had the teeth marks in his arm to prove it!
I was privileged to be able to photograph a few of the Maasai children and adults that live in villages that are apart of the Kilgoris project. These are special people on so many levels. I really hope I was able to portray their strong spirit.
