Fulani Woman

Category: Travel Portraits


Photo and caption by Maxime Alvarez de Toledo

This woman from Sevare in Mali, was showing her weddings jewels to her friend when I saw her. As it is traditional amongst the Fulani women, the tattoo around her mouth indicates that she is married and is designed to make her less attractive to other men.

Location: Sevare, Mali
