Maasai woman, Maasai Mara Game Reserve, Kenya; April 1979.

One of two Maasai women that we met as they walked together across the open grasslands of Maasai Mara, amidst the large mammals – Elephant, Lion, Hyaena, Buffalo, Hippopotamus, Leopard, Aardvark, Cheetah, Gazelle, Baboon, Giraffe, Black Rhinoceros and so on – that are an integral and accepted part of their everyday lives.

OM-1 with 75mm-150mm Zuiko; Agfa CT18 colour slide, rated at 64 ISO; converted to mono in Alien Skin’s Exposure 2.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.
