Barabaig warrior, Tanzania

I spent 2 years working with the Barabaig, and particularly with the young men who hunt elephants and lions with spears for glory and wealth. One day I came across this man and asked him if i could take his picture. He agreed and sat down for about 10 seconds, then abruptly stood up and stormed out of the hut, obviously angry that the shoot had taken so long… I only had time to take about 3 frames.
