BAKA PYGMIES - PYGMY WITH ANTELOPE (CAMEROON)

African Rainforest & Pygmy Peoples


Pygmy with antelope, from Luis Devin's anthropological research in Central Africa (Baka Pygmies, Cameroon)
Baka Pygmy hunter with an antelope on his shoulders, coming back from a hunting trip in the rainforest (Baka Pygmies, Cameroon).

"Lungo la strada, sul sentiero che riconduce all'accampamento, ognuno cammina con il suo carico di selvaggina e di emozioni, ognuno segue i propri pensieri senza emettere un fiato. Sul sentiero di casa, ognuno porta indietro qualcosa. Un'antilope, un cesto di frutti selvatici. Ognuno si porta a casa una storia da raccontare..."
