Fascinating Faces.

My classes have finished for this year and I am taking some much needed time just to do the things I love... art art and more art. I have been making some Soulcollages and while I have been browsing through some old magazines that I have been keeping I came across these photos which I thought were absolutely stunning. I went on line to search for John Kenny and I was completely side tracked with his amazing photography, I just had to share this with you.

Don't you just love the head dress they are all wearing... very creative.  I am not sure that I would like to be scared with hot pokers or what ever it is that they use to make these marks.
I am not sure why I stopped doing my SoulCollages when I saw these... what was the message? Perhaps something as simple as being really blessed to have been born in Africa. My paternal grandparents were Scottish but my father was born in China, maturnal grandparents were English but my mother was born in India. I was born in Africa and have been very blessed to have travelled the whole of Southern Africa from Zambia to Cape Town. There is not much of the country I haven't seen including South West, Namibia and Windhoek, Swaziland, Lesotho. I know why I stopped when I found these photo's... I am truly blessed.
