Along the southeastern coast of South Africa, the cattle of Pondoland make a daily pilgrimage to seaside, spending their afternoons luxuriating and dipping their hooves into the cool, lapping waves. For generations, the cows and bulls kept by members of the area’s Xhosa tribe have led their calves from their corrals toward the beach, for reasons mysterious to mankind. For Amapondo, Melbourne-based photographer Christopher Rimmer captures the enigmatical beasts silhouetted against the tide, their majestic figures reflected in the glossy sand below.
Photographer Dirk Rees feels extremely fortunate in his ability to pursue his passion for capturing Africa’s most iconic tribes. Having travelled extensively and lived all over Southern Africa, he has developed an unconditional love for the vast and diverse continent. For this particular project, he found himself in Kenya documenting the distinct tribe members who are known as Samburu Warriors.
