About Things From the Bush

With a head full of Laurens van der Post and half an anthropology degree from St Andrews University under his belt, James Suzman hitched a ride into Botswana’s eastern Kalahari in June 1991. He has been working with the Bushmen ever since.


He remains involved in a number of Kalahari initiatives through the Cambridge based research and support organisation he heads, Anthropos. 




These photographs span twenty years of work among and friendship with the San/Bushman peoples of the Kalahari Basin. The portraits here celebrate the beauty that lies beneath the veneer of social collapse and poverty among  Ju/'hoansi of Namibia's Omaheke  Region and the Hai//om of Etosha National Park in Namibia.
