Photographer's Note

A Zulu chief and the fancy foot gear he needs to wear! Imagine that. I was not sure what category to put this one in - does not seem like daily life to me, perhaps ceremony? At any rate, the sandals are not authentic, and if I had caught the back side of them, you would have seen the word "Nike" carved into the rubber they use to make these "modern" sandals. The rest of it is real though.

This was taken at a "cultural experience center" near to Johannesburg. The man in this fancy footwear, was dressed in the full regalia of a Zulu Chief, and was telling long stories of the Zulu history in South Africa. The Zulu people are a famous warrior nation who defeated the British army at the battle of Isandhlawana in 1879 with rawhide shields and broad bladed stabbing spears as their only weapons.

Tech: I cropped this alot to get just the footwear in, then adjusted contrast and saturated a little more. Also used unsharp mask and added a frame.
