PORTRAITS: BABA VUSI

 

 

Man! I am so happy to have met and honored to have photographed Baba Vusi Shibambo of THE Zulu tribe. Vusi is from South Africa, a place of much interest to me, there is so much history there and I know Vusi witnessed some pivotal moments first hand. I truly felt like a little kid in his presence, I wanted to ask 1,000 questions and it was the hardest task for me to stay still as he played the hand drums while I struggled to take photos. Next time I'm going to have to straight up put my camera down and pause for 15 minutes so I can soak it up IRL.
