I have always been uncomfortable photographing native peoples too glibly, as it always feels a bit like cultural imperialism - wanting to show the old-fashioned or odd for the folks at home. As such, I am always hyper-aware when bringing my camera out, and want to ensure that those who will fill the lens are comfortable and happy for me to take some shots.
But there have been times when chance and opportunity met - an extraordinary morning with a Himba family in Kaokaland in northern Namibia; a village of Masaii warriors who warmed to the photography as they saw images of themselves on the back of my camera; a village in central Rajasthan whilst walking with the head man; gauchos in South America - whether training horses in Argentina or leading an old-fashioned cattle drive in the Pantanal of Brazil.
In addition, this gallery also includes a number of more classic travel images - the beautiful panorama of Table Mountain and Cape Town from a helicopter on a rare clear day; the bizarre Moai of Easter Island; the Place Djemaa el Fna in Marrakech; a shaft of light in the Church of the Holy Sepulchre in Jerusalem, Israel.
As with all the main galleries, I have chosen to show the images in random order rather than thematically or chronologically.
