I love huge, beautiful pieces of art, but I don't have a wall at home big enough to hang anything large, so we've started a little trade with our friends over at the Clic Gallery. We get to choose a lovely, huge photograph to adorn the front wall of our office every two months, and then we post it here and share it with you. Click below to see this stunning one in our office and find out what this is.
Artist: Lyle Owerko
Title: Samburu 21/ Shy Samburu Girl of the Samburu Warrior Series, Pigment Ink Archival Print

"Lyle Owerko (Canada/United States, b. 1968) is a photographer and filmmaker who closely follows Western and non-Western cultural events alike with a careful balance of humanitarian sensitivity and photojournalistic precision. His work ranges the September 11th, 2001 TIME Magazine cover image to projects for MTV and The Sundance Channel. His latest body of work, The Samburu, documents the humble tribe with a level of understated dignity, pride and reverence following his years long familiarity with the individuals portrayed in his images. His work is included in the permanent collection of the Library of Congress in Washington DC."
