Publisher's Description

Printed in an edition of 1000.

The Maasai tribe is one of the most photographed tribes across Africa, but pictures of them that cross the world are almost always from Western photographers who show a cliché like vision of the traditional jumping Maasai. My Maasai is a photo publication in which photographers from Eastern Africa show their vision on the Maasai. It shows pictures of a rapper Maasai, a pilot Maasai, a lesbian Maasai, Maasai architecture, a female Maasai God and much more. This book fights the stereotype image of the jumping Maasai and shows at the same time why African photographers are so much better at photographing the topics in their own region. My Maasai is an initiative of Jan Hoek, in collaboration with Kenya-based photographers Sarah Waiswa (Uganda), Joel Lukhovi (Kenya), Mohammed Althoum (Sudan) as well as students of the De-Capture Limited School of Photography.
