Photographer Captures The Hauntingly Beautiful Rituals Of Nomadic Life
|September 14, 2015||Posted by TravelKinds.Com under General||
Three young women look skyward, happily. They’re wearing heavy headscarves, decked out in beaded necklaces and painted faces. The occasion? After nearly a year of traveling in search of water, they’re entering the end of the rainy season, a time for celebration among the Wodaabe people of Niger. The festival, called Gerewol, centers on a dance competition in which male participants aim to win the hearts of female onlookers. Once the music and dancing fizzles out, they return to their traditionally nomadic lifestyle until the next Gerewol.
