Return from the Kalahari
We spent whole days in their company, watching them in their camp, learning their approach to healing and touch, walking in the bush foraging for food and useful herbs and fruits for eating and cures, seeing how they made bows and arrows and traps, storing water in ostrich shells, tracking animals and learning about their history and the pressures they are under from other tribes, government and modern life.
On two nights we joined them for traditional music and dance. The night vision feature of the Sony HDR-HC3E camcorder proved very effective as did all its features. What a piece of kit!!
So far I have only had time to process the still camers shots taken with the Sony whilst shooting the video part of my assignment, the results of which you can see in a slideshow.
I have just got back 12 rolls of processed film taken with the Leica M6 and will comment on that at my next blog entry. If you have any comments and questions so far - just add a comment.
