About the work

The Proud Nightwatchman

David Yarrow:

"The Dinka means “people’ in their own language and there are about 5 million of them in South Sudan. They have many salient characteristics – a deep sense of community, a love for their cattle and a height 3 inches taller than the human average, coupled with great physical strength for the men. Each Dinka faction will use guns to fight and kill to protect their community and their cattle from outsiders. These characteristics are reflected in this photograph of an adult herdsman in a cattle camp near Yirol. He was at least 6 foot 5 inches of muscle, carrying a gun as he watched attentively over his community below".
