A German photographer captured stunning portraits of the last nomads and semi-nomads in Africa
Mario Gerth a documentary photographer has been to 80 countries for his work. He travelled for 2 years across remote African regions to take portraits of nomads living in these remote regions.
The following images reflect the beauty of these nomads and semi-nomads.
His trip delivered a series of striking portraits of the last nomads and semi-nomads left across Africa. Their cultures have created unique adornments from the surrounding environment to represent themselves with an almost otherworldly beauty. The German documentary photographer’s photo essay captures the beauty and diversity of Africa that clashes with the orderly Western society.
It might sound unbelievable, but it is said that all people have originated from Africa. It’s an interesting thought, if you imagine that – because of the facilities provided by modern societies – a lot of aboriginals are starting to fade away.
