Photographer Notes: A young Himba woman from Northern Namibia, Africa nurtures a small child.
The minute I heard my first love story,
I started looking for you, not knowing
how blind that was.
Lovers don't finally meet somewhere,
they're in each other all along.

Photographer’s Notes: A Himba woman from Northern Namibia, Africa.
Your love lifts my soul from the body to the sky
And you lift me up out of the two worlds.
I want your sun to reach my raindrops,
So your heat can raise my soul upward like a cloud.
From Thief of Sleep
