Maasai portrait, Kenya

  • Maasai, Masai Mara
  • Young Maasai men braided their hair in very intricate patterns, sometimes using as much as 16 strands at a time. They wear earrings and bracelets, as well as beaded necklaces that hang down the front and back of their bodies. In exchange for a few dollars, they are happy to pose for the camera.
