Photographer's Note

My little warrior, when you will turn 13 you will have to kill a lion. Afterwards you could protect the cattle from any danger. And I hope that you will manage to be as wealthy as your father, this way you could also have eight wives, just like his him.
You will exchange them with cattle; they will build your house, cook and raise your kids.

I took this photo in a small village contains 95 habitants not far from Ngorongroro. All of them belong to the same family. The woman in the picture share her husband with sever more wives.
It was extremely hot there, with flies everywhere, but they were very nice and welcoming.

I like this photo especially because of their expression. It is pity I can’t submit here a photo larger than 800 pixels because otherwise you could see me through the reflection of the boy’s eyes.
