In the artist's own words: “This is a photo of a nomadic fruit farmer, Hellmut, whom three friends and I met with our guide Ernst while on a desert camping excursion in Namibia on our Semester at Sea voyage. He can be seen with his ‘nara' which he turns into fruit leather and sells. During the off season of the fruit he moves back to the hut where his wife and 7 children live.”
