Great SnapRJW 2014-02-25 10:10

A fascinating study Neels and an interesting palette of colours. I find the mask quite disconcerting, it seems like a barrier - a closing off despite the very good eye contact you have here. I also find an incongruity between the cross and the ceremonial rituals. An excellent shot that leaves me asking questions. Warm regards from Windhoek Rosemary

Default To SnapRJW: Traditions lost?

Dear Rosemary,
I have the same "questions" and "reservations", for lack of better terms, but I should rather not criticise as I do not know the real reasons for the deviation from very old meritorious customs and traditions. It seems there may be a hybridization of Western influence and African tradition. Maybe that is also part of a transition. With my very best wishes.
