1 - 2 weeks availability


This is a photographic journey of the discovery of one of the most fascinating populations in Africa. The Masai are an ancient tribe of African warriors, native to Kenya and profoundly representative of a fast-disappearing culture, characterized by a deep bond with Nature. Matteo Guzzini, an Italian photo reporter who has lived in Kenya for some time, has photographed this tribe, in its many anthropological variants, over a long period. The volume, edited by concept designer Moreno Gentili, is divided into four chapters, each revealing unknown aspects of the Masai culture. Rito (Ritual), Cibo (Food), Uomo (Man) and Luogo (Place) recount the myth of individuals who have written African history but who are now struggling to maintain their freedom, to avoid being conditioned by a highly anthropized system.
