A sneak peek at this month's stunning photostory from South Sudan by Tariq Zaidi (@tariqzaidiphoto)

A young Mundari boy holds his precious Ankole-Watusi cow. 'These animals are treated like members of the family,' says Zaidi. 'When the cattle return back from the pasture they know exactly where their masters are and where their home is - they are like dogs. Families will sleep with them, wash them in ash and make sure their ground is soft and clean'. Credit to Tariq Zaidi Photography

Washing hangs in one of the corridors of the occupied IBGE building. ‘Favela’ Mangueira community, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil.
In 2011 there were plans to make the abandoned IBGE buildings in Mangueira into a cultural center, expected to be completed by the end of 2012. The Housing Department put together a package of R $ 150 million ($ 46 million), which covered other projects for Mangueira as well. Nothing as yet has been implemented at the abandoned IBGE building.

Image from my work in Chad. Photograph by @tariqzaidiphoto. Part of a feature story on “The Wodaabe Nomads of Chad” - published in @bbcafrica @el_pais and @spiegelonline
A Wodaabe man from Chad displays his intricate make-up for the night’s festivities. He uses whatever he can find - red ochre from the ground to paint the faces orange, and a paste made from chalk to emphasise the symmetry of his features. His black eyeliner and lipstick is made from charred egret bones or battery acid. Some of the make-up is believed to have magical powers and the Wodaabe go to great lengths to secure it. The orange face powder is only to be found beside a special mountain near Jongooria in central Niger, and some clans of Wodaabe must undertake a 1,400km round trip on foot in order to secure a supply.
The nomadic Wodaabe tribe graze their cattle through the Sahel desert from northern Cameroon to Chad, Niger and north-east Nigeria. Crossing countries riven by drought, poverty and war, they shelter in the most basic of structures with few possessions and are totally dependent on their animals for survival. Yet despite the harshness of their environment, it’s beauty that the Wodaabe prize above all else and once a year, the men don elaborate costumes, daub their faces with make-up and dance for hours in the hope of finding love.

The Himba have an estimated population of about 50,000 people living in northern Namibia and on the other side of the Kunene River in southern Angola.
The image is from my work on "Searching for the Lost Tribes of Angola". Although many people when asked may say they are Angolan, most of them will really have their primary sense of identity and loyalty to a tribe. The various tribes and ethnic groups tend to cluster in certain areas of the country each with their own customs, language and history. There are over 90 different ethnic groups in Angola. ©Tariq Zaidi Photography. All Rights Reserved.
