Stunning Images Of The Dinka People Of Southern Sudan And Their Way Of Life
By Amanda Mok, 10 Mar 2014
Photographers Carol Beckwith and Angela Fisher have come up with a stunning series featuring the people and lifestyle of the Dinka tribe in the South of Sudan.
Because herding cattle is a way of life, the milestones of the people of the Dinka tribe are very closely tied with their oxen. For example, young Dinka men are given an ox when they come of age, and the name of the ox becomes part of their identity.
The series was inspired by their awareness that “traditional cultures are fast disappearing”, and they wanted to preserve the “sacred tribal ceremonies and African cultural traditions all too vulnerable to the trends of modernity.”
Scroll down for the images.
