‘Namanga’ is a photographic collection by Kenyan visual artist Osbourne Macharia. The images focus on the Maasai (Masai) Home Keepers that live in the Namanga area of Kenya.

From a young age, the role of home keeper is to protect their cattle from human and animal predators and also to provide a secure and stable environment for their families. Despite western influences and education, the Maasai people have managed to hold on to their traditional lifestyles and practices making them a prominent part of Kenyan culture.
