The Cheif

Category: Travel Portraits


Photo and caption by Brianna McKeage

A busy highway, an international airport and a Vodacom tower surround a small Masai village just outside of Moshi - signs that this nomadic tribe is now facing challenging adaptations to developments in Northern Tanzania. The cheif allowed me to take this picture of him, and the look on his face shows me his sadness in potentially losing the acient African lands that belong to him.

Location: Moshi, Tanzania
