Warrior Gaze

The spear-wielding young men of the Samburu tribe of Northern Kenya are known for their fierceness, bravery and pride. The word "Samburu" translates to "butterfly" and was a name bestowed on them by others, referring to the vibrant, colourful, ornate beadwork that is worn by the tribe's members. Through my work as a documentary filmmaker I was fortunate enough to be granted inside access to a very remote Samburu community nestled deep in the Mathews Mountains, Namunyak Conservancy.
