A profile portrait of a standing man holding a club over his right shoulder, seemingly unaware of Evans-Pritchard’s camera. The image seems to be related to others of the gorot fertility rite carried out for a young couple, possibly at Nyueny village in western Nuerland where Evans-Pritchard spent 5 weeks, Africa, 1936.
Portrait of a young nuer sitting on the ground. His body and face covered with ashes that accent the gar initiation marks on the head. The youth is probably not aware of Evans-Pritchard photographing him, since the Rolleiflex camera is sitting on the ground, probably alongside Evans-Pritchard who could take shots by looking down into the top viewer, Southern Sudan, Africa, 1936.
“I may disappear leaving behind me no worldly possessions - just a few old socks and love letters, and my windows overlooking Notre-Dame for all of you to enjoy, and my little rag and bone shop of the heart.”
