AFRO-POP ๐Ÿ†: This photo set is dedicated to an ushering in of a new era of time where women of colour are at the forefront of popular culture. Figures like Cardi B having a number one album, Beyonce headlining, Karena Evans directing Drakes videos are not events that should be taken lightly. In fact they should be celebrated. This my humble offering and homage to women doing it big in the world today. Feel free to comment below with a woman that inspires you!

"We are part of the earth and it is part of us" -Chief Seattle  ___ Living in a rural village is a unique experience in coming close to nature. I've noticed that over the past few years, I have gained a much greater appreciation for Mother Earth. I've seen how she provides for these communities and how they live and survive off of what she gives them. These are communities that don't have the option to rely on much else.  The morning light and roosters wake you at dawn. Water is pumped up from underground (or from a nearby river) and brought to the home for storage or use. You cook over a fire and pluck your soup's main ingredient from your yard or field (be it potato greens, palm nuts, or pumpkin). Bananas, pineapples, papayas, mangos, and avocados are sweeeeet and ripe, when in season. There's no escaping the humidity that the environment radiates, but coconut trees provide shade as well as cool water inside bundles of hard shells that only the brave shimmy up to retrieve. Seasons greatly determine crop yield and work calendars, and farmers must understand and work with inconsistent timetables. Rats, lizards, coachroches, and mosquitos inside the house are an inescapable truth. High flowing rivers must be crossed, but they also provide swimming and washing holes in their random pools. Feet are always dirty by the end of the day. Crickets echo in choirs outside at night, calling tired souls who have worked the land all day into a peaceful slumber.  It's a life of constant struggle, of finding food and money to buy the few things that nature can't provide, of living in survival mode. But there's a beautiful lesson tucked deep within this experience of living. It reminds us that life exists outside of consumerism, that we will always, at our core, share a connection to the earth and to each other as mankind, and that we can live a simpler life, one more in line with nature โœŒ๐ŸŒฟ
We received the warmest “welcome home” from the Ngoni tribe in Zambia! ๐Ÿ‡ฟ๐Ÿ‡ฒ —They tried to get us in on the dance but we didn’t want to show them our moves and end up battling them, so we kept it light ๐Ÿ˜‚
Market day in Tamegroute. This place was pretty intense - 99% dudes who weren’t too happy about a group of mostly foreign women turning up to have a stickybeak at their Saturday market and goat trading. It’s one of the few times in my life I’ve been SO acutely aware of my gender and felt disadvantaged by it. Still, very interesting to have had a peep around this town on the border of the Sahara. These were the only photos I took before two guys followed us and furiously demanded I delete shots from my phone.  #morocco #marrakech #africa #moroccan #market #tamegroute #desert #maghreb #traveller #travel #travelgram #travelphotography #iphoneonly #iphoneography #northafrica #everydayafrica #everydayeverywhere #roadtrip #ontheroad

The Okavango River is the fourth-longest river system in southern Africa, running southeastward for 1700 km. It begins in Angola, where it is known by the Portuguese name Rio Cubango, further south, it forms part of the border between Angola and Namibia, and then flows into Botswana, draining into the Moremi Game Reserve. The river—formerly sometimes called the Okovango–takes its name from the Okavango (Kavango) people of northern Namibia.  David Livingstone and the first European known to have seen the Okavango, reached its swampy delta in 1849. Discharging to an endorheic basin, the Okavango does not have an outlet to the sea. Instead, it empties into a swamp in the Kalahari Desert, known as the Okavango Delta or Okavango Alluvial Fan. Every wet season, Angola receives three times more rainfall than Botswana, discharging a higher than usual flow into the Okavango, turning swathes of outlying desert into a huge wetland. Although the summer rains fall in Angola in January, they take a whole month to travel the first 1000 km of the Okavango River, and then they take a further four months to filter through the plants and numerous channels of the final 250 km of the delta. As a result, the flood is at its biggest sometime between June and August, during Botswana's dry winter months. The delta then swells to three times its permanent size, attracting animals from miles around and creating one of Africa's greatest concentrations of wildlife. At its widest point in a big flood year, the seasonal swamp stretches to 150 km across from east to west; one of the factors that leads to the ever-changing nature of the delta is the flatness of the area.If one were to take a cross section of the delta at its widest point, one would find that the height variation from the mean over that 150 km is less than 2 m, which means that a minor sand deposition can cause major changes. The river supports around 600,000 people living near its basin, their livestock and a myriad of

I’ve watched my cousin, Kaz, grow into an exceptional violinist over a very short time. On this journey for the past two years, he joined the Kenya National Youth Orchestra six months ago, a dream come true for him. We were born on the same day, years apart, so I wasn’t surprised today our firsts aligned yet again - his first performance in an orchestra and mine to watch a live orchestra. Equipped only with my iPhone, it only made sense to document this intersection.  #synchronicity #everydayafrica #kenya #africa #violin #orchestra #shotoniphone
Ok..this is a fun little coincide.. one of the themes we had to photograph for yesterday's #photomarathon was "my hero". I wanted to photograph something / someone that almost all people can realte to and recongize for what they have done, not just me. So, as I couldn't fly over to England to take a quick portrait of Mo Salah in person (time constraints hehe) I got his jersey instead!  And in case you're living under a rock (hopefully no one is), Salah just won PFA Player of the year, as he's the BEST PLAYER in Premier League season 2017/2018 ๐Ÿ•บ #everydayeverywhere #everydaycairo #everydayafrica #everydayegypt #everydaymiddleeast #lfc #ynwa
