A Wandering Life is a project that explores the essence of nomadic and tribal life. It is a study of people who move from place to place and understand the spirit of the land.

The Wandering Life collection portrays images of human life. They show us tranquillity that exists between humans and the land. Depicting many diverse cultures, the compelling photographs convey feelings experienced by people around the globe, celebrating and revealing the heart of humanity.

Second in the series is THE AFAR people live primarily in Ethiopia, Eritrea, Djibouti, and Somalia. Their land is mainly rocky and desert terrain. There are approximately 3 million people that make up the Afar culture. Living in this waste of crumbling rock and broken lava flows.

The Afar people are largely nomads and almost entirely Muslim by faith. The Afar language (or Danakil) is a Cushitic language.

Light and portable, the Afar huts called aris, can be built and dismantled quickly, a job usually done by women. Afar huts, provide shade from the sun, and storage for their owners' scanty possessions, are hemispherical in shape and made of palm ribs covered with matting. Light enough to be transported on camel-back; they are erected in semi-permanent locations in the course of seasonal migrations, usually near wells.
