The Samburu are a fiercely pastoralist group of people who live in the northern territory of Kenya, and have existed outside of major Western influence until recent decades. Capturing their beautiful presence with a tintype technique, Lyle Owerko’s portraits celebrate the intrinsic historical integrity of Samburu culture and life.
