Where Fire Speaks Where Fire Speaks  

On the wild river that divides Namibia from Angola, members of the Himba tribe herd cattle as they have done for hundreds of years.
But the world of the Himba sits in the shadow of third-world development and the inevitability of change that threatens their way of life; now, they are more likely to attend evangelical church services, congregate around the liquor trader's truck, and pose for tourists' photographs.

Sandra Shields and David Campion spent two months living with the Himba, and this book, a provocative melding of photography and narrative, tells of the profound changes in the lives of the Himba -- both gradual and immediate -- which echo those effecting indigenous people around the world.

Includes more than one hundred black and white -photographs.

David Campion and Sandra Shields met in South Africa, married a year later, and have collaborated for over a decade. Sandra has written for publications including "Geist" and "The Globe and Mail," and David's photographs have appeared in publications and exhibitions in Canada, Europe, and Africa.
