Mundari Cattle Herder
The Mundari, also referred to as Mandari, are a small ethnic group and one of the Nilotic peoples, living north of the capital of Juba, South Sudan. Like other Nilotic tribes, they are very cattle-oriented and treasure their cattle more than anything else and are said to sleep close to their most prized cow. Their cattle serves as food, a form of currency and a mark of status.
Josef Buergi SWITZERLAND
Born in 1965 in Berne, Switzerland, Joe Buergi started around 2000 with photography. He studied Engineering and works for the public sector. As a pure autodidact he developed the knowledge by himself, but also studying the masters. His music photography, together with travel, have become two of his life’s passions. His photography focuses on culture, landscapes and wildlife; images which reflect a spatial and temporal journey through life. He seeks the quite moments and the light in whatever context he finds himself. He is an eclectic photographer who enjoys diversity in his imagery. Hence his images range from travel to landscapes and portraits. He believes that photography can capture those inimitable moments and empower us to make a positive change in our world.
