Charles Lane: Barabaig

CHARLES LANE: BARABAIG
 

Dr Charles Lane, Desmond Tutu Reconciliation Fellowship Chair, has launched his beautiful book Barabaig: Life, Love and Death on Tanzania's Hanang Plains. This wonderful book was joyfully received by the Barabaig people and is now available for purchase around the world — for international orders click here

The Barabaig are a group of nomadic cattle herders located in north central Tanzania. In the 1980’s, Charles lived with the tribe for two years and this was the beginning of a life-long friendship.

The book and photographic exhibition at Brightspace beautifully illustrate the artistry of the Barabaig in many facets of their lives, and are a fascinating anthropological record and a visual feast. The rich Barabaig culture is under threat of dissapearing, making this work an invaluable record of their existence.
