Photographer's Note

For the Maasai, every colour has a meaning. The Maasai express themselves through the colours in their clothes and jewelery:

red = courage (worn by warriors)
white = peace
light blue = water of life
sky blue = God's blessings
dark blue = rain clouds
orange = sunshine
yellow = acacia flowers (for medicine)
green = grass of open plains
black = cattle (wealth and success)

This gentle 25 year-old warrior was mainly expressing courage and God's blessings with his red and blue robes, while expressing peace through his white beads.
