A young Wodaabe girl on route to local village market in Niger. She is dressed in the traditional dark cloth of the nomadic Wodaabe, which beautifully compliments the colourful beads and bright eyes of Wodaabe women. The hair clips are a modern addition.

John Kenny’s work is all shot on location in some of the remotest corners of Africa. His images are all taken with natural light and his subjects in their day to day attire.

The C-type prints are mounted with an acrylic face mount giving them a 3-dimensional appearance and a contemporary look.
