Himba Pride – A contrast of Family Life

Namibia
Archie Brooksbank

NAMIBIA_01
"Home" – Namibia establishing shots would be of a sand dune. I wanted to establish the location with a unexpected shot. Showing the mesmerising vastness of Namibia, the colour and the symbolic Oryx giving the landscape the Namibian Signature.
NAMIBIA_02
"Daily Chores" – The Himba Women are standing strong. Exhibiting pride and unity but also separation from society.
NAMIBIA_03
"Himba Family Life" – A true contrast of homes to anything I have every seen.
NAMIBIA_04
"Homework" – Showing boys having to be men before they time to help the family to survive in this hash landscape. No time for school work.
NAMIBIA_05
"Dinner Time" – The head Himba Lady cooks dinner for the family in her tradition dress. The horns suggesting the nomadic cattle herding heritage
