A Tuareg Girl: The Tuareg are a Berber people with a traditionally nomadic pastoralist lifestyle and are world renowned goldsmiths. Most Tuareg live in the Saharan parts of Niger and Mali but, being nomadic, there is constant movement across national borders, and small groups of Tuareg are also found in southeastern Algeria, southwestern Libya and northern Burkina Faso, and a small community in northern Nigeria.

Among the Tuareg, the men are veiled and the women are not. The society is largely matrilineal. They don’t fit into the nice bundles that art historians or anthropologists like to have. The Tuareg defy stereotypes—of Islam, Africa and social relationships—in other ways: The Tuareg are Islamic, but not in any comprehensive sense, it’s mixed with a heavy dose of pre-existing pagan beliefs in the evil eye and the world of spirits, or jinn.

Striking photo by Dutch photographer Mario Gerth. Beautiful is an understatement in this case, Mario’s subjects span from different regions across Africa, from countries such as Namibia, Niger, Kenya, Mali and Ethiopia.
