This is Nyotee Kweshema of the Datoga Tribe in Tanzania. She is part of an extensive series of portraits Iâ€™m working on of indigenous tribes in Tanzania. She is probably in her seventies, and I think she is beautiful and would turn heads wherever she lived. I remember she just walked onto our makeshift set, and just sat like this, with no direction from me. So very regal. I loved her.
Special thanks to in Tanzania for all his help and expertise. Asante sana.
