Photographer Philemon Makini has an awesome new project called ‘Maasai Warrior‘. The project features a Maasai Warrior in New York City. According to him, he was inspired by from his curiosity about what would happen when a Maasai warrior left his homeland and ventured into the streets of one the world’s biggest cities.

It is interesting to see the contrast of the Maasai shuka and beads against the backdrop of the large advertising screens of New York City. Going through the pictures, I appreciated the diversity and the unique beauty of our traditional wear more.

Take a look at the pictures below.
