African twilight

Wildlife lover Brian Jackman’s fixation with Africa spans over 40 years, beginning at the same time two young photographers, Carol Beckwith and Angela Fisher, started their own exploration of the continent. Their passion, however, was with Africa’s rich cultural heritage and their life’s work has resulted in undoubtably the most comprehensive record of Africa’s traditional ceremonies ever compiled.

Exclusively for Travel Africa, Brian interviewed Carol and Angela to learn more about their extraordinary story, the lessons learned along the way, and their fears for Africa’s changing cultural landscape.

This is followed by a selection of images from their masterpiece African Twilight, which lend some insight to the traditions recorded in their book.

In 1974 – the same year I first set foot in Africa – a young American photographer called Carol Beckwith decided on a whim to spend Christmas in Kenya with a friend. She went for six weeks, stayed for eight months and her life was changed forever. During her stay she was invited to meet the Maasai and photograph their most intimate ceremonies.
