On my last visit to Lesotho I had the opportunity to photograph some of the locals. Just a few kilometers from the city you enter an almost untouched part of Lesotho. As if you where stepping back in time. Curious by the camera and yet afraid that it would capture part of their soul some locals allowed me to capture part of their essence to share with the world.
Lesotho (le-soo-too) is called Southern Africa's "kingdom in the sky" for good reason. This stunningly beautiful, mountainous country is nestled island-like in the middle of South Africa and it is a fascinating travel detour from its larger neighbor. The country offers superb mountain scenery, a proud traditional people, endless hiking trails, and the chance to explore remote areas on Basotho ponies.
