This image was made during an amazing trip to the Turkana region in northern Kenya. During the day we had seen these boys herding their families' livestock - camels, donkeys and goats - to grazing sites and waterholes. It was hard, hot and tiring work. As the sun set, we came across the boys again. Their day's work done, they were at play, whooping as they dashed across the dry riverbed - being boys once more after a long day doing 'men's work'.
