With Love from Karamoja.
The Karimojong are nomadic warriors; they live and die for cattle, they occupy northeast region that borders Kenya, Sudan and Ethiopia. I was blessed to interact with (thank gods they speak a bit of Kiswahili too) and photograph a group of female Karamojong elders while on a social work field trip with Viva Con Agua and Welt Hunger Hilfe on a clean water campaign to promote sanitation and hygiene in Moroto district ( North-Eastern Uganda). The portraits you are about to see were taken from one of the “Manyatta’s) / communal housing setup in Moroto.
