sailor (Mountains&Ocean)

The Dinka are a Nilotic ethnic group of Southern Sudan. Live from the tenth century on both sides of the Nile River and speak a language belonging to the Nilo-Saharan group. There are about three million and are divided into about 21 groups, each with its own legitimate leader.

Although farming has always been their main economic resource, has never missed an important agricultural and fishing that has allowed them to be self-sufficient in food. More increasingly gaining importance will trade and light industry.

Photographers Carol Beckwith and Angela Fisher have an experience of over 30 years of recording the ceremonies, rituals and daily lives of African tribal peoples. His photographs reflect a long and deep relationship of respect for the customs and people of these tribes, especially those of the Dinka of Sudan:

Traditionally the Dinka wear little clothing, being normal for a grown man to go completely naked except collars around their necks. Women usually carry only one goat skin from the waist. Increasingly, girls like to dress forms from neighboring towns, and men, the long robes worn in the north. They care a lot, especially men, body ornamentation. They usually take some teeth by a purely cosmetic issue. Men who are pastoralists, using cow dung ash to repel mosquitoes. It is easy to see men, especially among the young, with hair dyed red, for what they use cow urine, while women head and eyebrows shaved, leaving only a tuft of hair above her head.
