Maasai

1980

Reviews

'The Maasai coffee table book; some photos are too much to take at reading distance. Exquisite but largely staged portraits of a vanishing culture (and even Beckwith's camera can't disguise the tourist souvenirs in the background). Variably interesting, chauvinistic text, which plays the cult value of the Maasai for all it's worth.'
