Mario Gerth’s photos of the sons and daughters of the wind

Traveling through some of Africa’s most remote regions for months, German photographer Mario Gerth took intimate portraits that depict the last nomads and semi-nomads of an entire continent. His photographs are an homage to Africa and its people. They document, inform and preserve. His main goal is to inspire.

This collection, “Sons and Daughters of the Wind,” shows the nomads and semi-nomads of Africa living a frugal, basic and content life. The horizon is their home. They are the “children of the sun and the sons and daughters of the wind.”

It took Gerth six years in Africa on many different journeys. He spent two of those years biking from Cape Town to Cairo.
