Eating with the Maasai

 

 

This photographic series takes the viewer through the preparation of a meal by a Maasai community. The ceremony took an entire day and brought individuals of two families together. 

 

When following Maasai social norms, men are not allowed to come into the kitchen space and women cannot be near the area where the animal is being cooked. Nevertheless, in the most progressive Maasai communities, women are starting to have gradually more independence, and gender roles are slowly starting to fade.
