‘I had been living in a remote corner of Maasai-land for over a year, when I decided to try and capture the grace and elegance of a Maasai moran (warrior). The scene took place on the dusty floor of the Rift Valley with me lying on the ground while three warriors leapt above me. I could only photograph in short bursts, as there were regular, spontaneous and hysterical bouts of laughter from both sides, but for different reasons. I was laughing at the ridiculous athleticism and the soaring heights of each jump. The warriors were laughing at the crazy mzungu (white person) rolling in the dust.’
