In 2007, 2008 and 2010 photographer V. Tony Hauser travelled to Kenya donating his time to document the humanitarian work of Canada’s most inspired international, youth-motivated aid organization
Attracted and captivated by the complex customs of various African tribes Hauser became acquainted with traditional Maasai villagers who eventually invited him to their homes to be photographed. Intrigued by the Maasai’s regal poise and serenity, the photographer began to make portraits with both modern and antique cameras resulting in intimate, engaging and elegant images of tribal chiefs, elders, families and children or young ‘warriors’ at the brink of manhood.
The masterfully produced collection of limited edition photographs is rendered in platinum, silver or carbon pigment prints. The collection is available for viewing at the studio / gallery, 37 King Street East, Toronto Ontario.
The new collector’s edition art book (which is featured in the video), further explores Maasai life through images and words. Hauser blends his photographs with legends and traditions told by elders who idolize the past. But he recognizes that the once nomadic Maasai are at the threshold of a subtle, but rapidly approaching evolution.
