    In late December 2012 a client approached me regarding a lifelong dream of mine; To photograph the Himba Tribes of Northern Namibia. A few months later, Joel and I set off on the six-week adventure in my faithful old Landy, packed to the brim with supplies, gin, tonic and camera equipment. For those of you who followed the adventure here, at last, are the results. None of which would have been possible without; Mr and Mrs Anker, Joel Schmiedeke, Marciello Sangiorgio, Karen Hanson, Kenamajo our translator and, of course, Miss T Effting for holding the fort back in the Cape. A Huge thank you guys!
