Dassanech woman

Dassanech people live near the border of kenya by the shores of lake Turkana. One of the most interesting tribes to photograph it is not so easy to get to. After a 3 hr drive through dusty roads we had to cross the river full of crocodiles on dugout tribal canoes. What sounds like a dangerous place to live, actually helps the tribe survive. In times when cattle is lost to disease, local men hunt crocodiles, even a small one is enough to feed a family for days.
