Afar goat herders use a reed mat to shield their campfire from the steady winds of the Ethiopian Danakil Desert. The Afar are a nomadic people who drive their camels, donkeys, and goats in search of the region’s scant pasturelands. Centuries of defending their territory and their herds has made them fierce. One Afar custom, now defunct, declared a man could not marry without first killing an enemy tribesman.

阿法尔族牧羊人,埃塞俄比亚,2005

埃塞俄比亚达纳基勒沙漠里,阿法尔族牧羊人用一张芦苇席护住他们的营火,以防被持续的阵风吹灭。阿法尔族是一个游牧民族,赶着骆驼、驴子和山羊寻找这个地区内为数不多的牧场。几百年护卫领土和牧群的斗争使他们变得凶猛可怕。阿法尔族有一条已经废除的习俗,男人在杀死过一名敌对部落成员之前不可以结婚。
