About the Work


FROM: AFRICA VI, The Tuareg, The Sahara Desert, Mali, 2005-2009

The Tuareg are a nomadic tribe who’ve inhabited the vast Sahara Desert for 4,000 years. They are nominally Muslim and primarily practice Animism: The worship of nature, spirits and jinn. Their traditional dress is non-religious and predates Islam and the Christian Judeo era. The flowing clothes protect the wearer from sun, sand, heat, and wind. The Tuareg are a strong and proud people with an enhanced resiliency and determination due to their harsh environment. The mirror reflections magnify this strength and beauty, illustrating their connection to the Sahara.
