Publisher's Description
In Fritz Klemperer's startling new photographic essay, A Ballad for Kenya, portrays forty years of intimate access with its people, depicting a native people torn between the customs of the past and lure of Western culture. Through indigenous poetry and stories, the Kenyans narrate their every day lives, giving life to Klemperer's lyrically hand-colored black and white images. Old Kenya emerges too in a boy's circumcision rite, women in native dress, a funeral ritual for a child. These images reveal both the plight of a people as well as their trust in the rituals and simple lifestyle they have practiced for centuries.
