Mario Gerth: African Portraits

In 2004, a young German man kicked off on a cycling trip around the world.

A few months later he found himself on the last continent on his tour, beginning a two year odyssey that begun in Cape Town, South Africa and ended in Cairo, Egypt. The journey, through Africa’s wandering savannahs, hottest deserts and violent storms, was filled with fascinating encounters with nomads, remote villages and majestic animals.

‘Africa … gives me the feeling of home. I’ll never stop returning and photographing this beautiful continent.’

Beautiful is an understatement in this case, Mario’s subjects span from different regions across Africa, from countries such as Namibia, Niger, Kenya, Mali and Ethiopia.
