Wodaabe - Chad

XXVIII-14 - Exclusively selected Fine art print

Wodaabe | Gerewol festival, Chari-Baguirmi region | Chad, 2016

 

A distinctive aspect of the Gerewol festival is the way the men show the whiteness of their eyes and teeth to display their strength and good health. The chant they make by vibrating their lips is inspired by the egret, a bird
the Wodaabe associate with charisma and eloquence. Until recently, the only annual contact between the remote groups was the Gerewol. Every year these groups would reconnect and discuss crops, livestock, weather and
expectations for the year to come.

Jimmy Nelson Foundation

With your purchase you support Indigenous communities taking their heritage into the future

With its projects, the Jimmy Nelson Foundation (JNF) is completing the circle Jimmy has started. As cultures are rapidly changing through time, and the world’s cultural diversity is at risk, now is the moment to act. The JNF supports Indigenous communities in preserving and passing on their traditional heritage and knowledge by investing in reciprocity and educational projects.

When you look at people- whether they are the Huli from Papua New Guinea, the Mursi from Ethiopia or even oneself- look beyond and do not judge. Often the truth is far different from what the eye beholds.
