Description The nomadic people of the Richtersveld are indiginous to the area and earn a living from farming with goats and sheep. The water shortage in this arid region necessitates migration from one area in the National reserve to another, in order to ensure the necessary grazing for their herds. Grazing land in the reserve comes at a premium and is limited in some cases to rocky areas only, making their existence even more astonishing. The great Orange River that flows through the Richtersveld contrasts dramaticly with the dry rocky area that neighbours the river. This photograph was taken close to the Orange River where the Nomadic people and their animals recuperate before going out into the dry veld to graze. The subject is a grandmother watching over her grandson’s herd. The dry and rocky landscape of the Richtersveld can clearly be seen in the background.
