The Turkanas Of Kenya - Nomadic Herders In A Changing Climate

Belgian photographer Roger Job has documented some of the worst humanitarian crises in Africa, including the civil war in Liberia and Sudan and the trauma of Congo.

His latest project follows the Turkana pastoralists of Kenya, who are already feeling the impact of climate change. With difficulty accessing water points and pastures for their cattle, their nomadic way of life that has been largely intact for some 6,000 years is likely to be destroyed.

His images will be shown at an exhibition in the Charleroi Museum of Photography next year.
