How Others Live: Africa in a Tent

Elizabeth L. Gilbert began her career as a war photographer in the 1990’s, covering some of the most tragic events in human history such as the Rwandan genocide and civil war in Somalia. After years of conflict, a disillusioned Gilbert set out to point her cameras at the disappearing vestiges of traditional Africa. She 
succeeded at capturing some of the very last photographs of a vanishing world."

Living a true nomadic life, Gilbert lives six months out of the year living in her canvas tent in Africa documenting old tribal rituals that are dying off. I've had pictures up on my wall of her tent on and off for a couple years now. Someday maybe I'll live in a luxurious tent for an extended period of time too.
