This week, we’re featuring the work of two fantastic photographers, who will give us a snapshot of life in Tanzania and Kenya. Martin Russell, a longtime ONE member from Helena, Montana, will be sharing his bright photos from rural Tanzania. Since 1999, he has traveled to Tanzania 23 times — and he’s planning to return again in late June 2012. And DJ Glisson from Firefly Imageworks shares his peaceful and pretty photos from coastal Kenya, where he captured images of Many Hopes projects and the community surrounding it.
Pictured are members of the Hadzabe tribe hunting in Tanzania. The Hadzabe number just under 1,000. Some 300 to 400 Hadzabe live as hunter-gatherers, much as their ancestors have for thousands or even tens of thousands of years; they are the last full-time hunter-gatherers in Africa.
