Photographer Tariq Zaïdi, who lives in London, took pictures of the hairstyles of the isolated tribes in the countryside of Angola.

Zaidi obtained the photos during his tour of the southern African country in search of “lost tribes.”

Through his footage, the photographer sought to show the lifestyles and customs of people living in these isolated rural communities.

There are prominent features in the images are the hats and exotic hairstyles adopted by women and how they represent their status within their groups.

Zaidi found that women are very proud of the hairstyles and traditional clothes they wear.

Hairstyles can take hours to get to the final look because of the many details they include, including hair curls with straw, and goat-like hair with some other additions to decorate.

The rapid development of Angola thanks to oil has raised many fears that isolated tribal communities are at risk of vanishing.

Tariq Zaïdi

Tribes and different ethnic groups tend to gather in certain areas of the country, preserving all their customs, languages and history.

There are in Angola more than 90 different ethnic groups, located on the border with Namibia and Botswana from the south and east of Zambia, the Democratic Republic of the Congo to the north.

Among the communities that appeared in the images: Hemba, Mwila, Mukoroka and the Mukos tribes.

A family of lynx on his porch!

A family time for a lynx mom and her babies gave a full photo shoot for an Alaskan man.

Photographer Tim Newton woke up at 7:30 am last Tuesday after hearing someone or something running on his porch.

Curious, he went to see and certainly did not expect to find a small lynx pack that had settled right outside his door.

“I approached the window and opened the curtain. I could see what looked like a cat, he told the local station KTUU. I started to notice he had very big legs and hair on his ears. ”

It took no more for him to catch his camera. “Usually, when you see a lynx, you barely have time to take your camera that it is gone. I was really excited to be able to take several pictures of them playing on the patio. ”

In all, there were eight lynxes, the mother and her seven cubs. They stayed close to Tim for a while.

“They were using the balcony as a playground. They were having fun chasing each other, jumping on it for about half an hour,” he added.

Eventually, he decided to go out to see the lynx’s reaction. Even though the mother was alert, she remained calm. The little ones were rather intrigued by the human.

“I had my dressing gown so they could not see my legs. All they saw was that I had eyes and ahead and that big thing that was “click, click, click”, “he said referring to his camera.

It was after a little more than thirty minutes that the kittens and their mummy went back into the bushes.
