The Omo Series Pt. II

Greetings fellow human, 

So here it is, the Omo post part two. I realize I told you, Reader, in the last post that Dain would feature. Unfortunately my dear friend had to take a rain-check because he started training today, and I, fortunately took an off day because I care about my well-being - Mondays are not good for my health. 

Quite frankly I was bored, free and I figured heck, let me do it.

Dain will feature in the next one (I can try to promise you that much).

I gave you the basic breakdown of whom the Omo people are - or rather, the two tribes that are most well known - the Mursi and the Surma (Suri) tribe - so uyaqondastanda? If not, click here.

I must say: taking pictures with a camera of an average quality in a dissatisfying - or rather uninspiring location -  with just you, yourself and you is not what I had hoped for, but this is the result. Click here to see the image that inspired today's Omo look.

I figured I should post the song that literally made my head bob / twitch. 



Oboit, trust me, you can look like this everyday.

COLLABS | shot by Sipho Mpongo

So brotherman, Sipho, hollered at a sister because he had a task to fulfill and being the kid who's ever so keen, I obviously agreed.

I left work early and met-up with the talented brother near The Castle; we walked, conversed and basically caught-up because, like most Cape Tonians say, "It's beeeeen a minute."
He then informed me that we're going to wing this one because he really wanted to shoot with his new baby, the Canon 5D - OH MY GLOB 
(yes, I broke that camera's virginity.)

We made our way into his school, the Cape Town School of Photography, which I must say, has this effortless clean touch; the are walls decorated with the students' photography, filling up the blank space, one after the other. Not forgetting the huge framed window that generously allows in the fresh sunshine while the view of Table Mountain sits comfortably before your eyes.
Can you see it?
I'm sorry. I couldn't just simply describe it - It's bloody beautiful.

While Sipho set-up the studio, I got my black lip & wig on and this was basically the result of Thursday afternoon.

I could go on, but I choose not to because, dear Reader, this won't be the last time you see Sipho's name on this blog.
He's so gifted 
& yes, you can gaan an - have you seen his work?! Click here mtshana.
