Portraits of Africa

A first of what we predict to be many blog stories on the incredible tribal wear of Africa and the women who wear them. We begin with these beautiful portraits, showing women from all over Africa in the various 'costumes' of daily and ceremonial wear. Colour shouts from every possible weave, the incredible adornment of jewellery all over the body and intricate beading work plays through most of the garments to the simple bold coloured turbans which become a work of art against deep black skin.
These portraits show the many faces, lives and stories the African woman see's. Wisdom, truth and the beauty of a smile shines throughout each image.
Enjoy our first of many stories on the incredible beauty of Africa and its people.
