About the artwork

Each black and white photo by Philippe Geslin plunges us into parts of unknown territories, to meet fascinating people who have long been the subjects of our ethnographic surveys. The photographer goes beyond the usual discourses on the connections woven between people and their environments and takes stock, aesthetically, of the daily lives of the communities that he joins for the duration of his missions. Each image is informed by months in the field and lives shared-in cabins, huts, in the savannah, on the rivers and in the Amazonian jungle-so as to present the most accurate and intimate of testimonies. This photograph was taken in 2016 in the Great Rift Valley in Tanzania, a valley that Philippe Geslin knows well, since he lived for four years among Maasai and Hadza tribes. The Hadza are the last hunter-gatherers of East Africa, as this photograph portrays them.
