Himba - Namibia
Uaterereta, Himba | Ombivango Village, Epupa Falls | Namibia, 2011
The characteristic ‘look’ of the Himba comes from intricate hairstyles, the use of red ochre, traditional clothing and personal adornments in the form of jewellery. Although nowadays some of this is purely decorative, traditionally every detail has symbolism and meaning, representing different ranks in society.
