Painted faces

Image 8 of 14


Wodaabe men with faces covered in greasepaint perform during the 'Cure Salee' (salt cure) festival in Ingal, Niger, on Sept. 17. Tuareg, Peul, and Wodaabe nomads congregate each year at the salt flats around the northern oasis town of Ingal, where their camels, cattle, sheep, and goats drink the mineral-rich water after months on the move.
