Natu by Mario Gerth
This variant is currently sold out
"A quiet sing-song humming comes through her full lips, only a melody, then suddenly a few words leaves her mouth, ever so tender notes that eventually get lost in the emptiness of Africa.
An internal dynamic slowly seizes this petite body, now awake and powerful carries out her work and gives form to her life. Only covered with a colorful goat-skirt the young girl moves the plunger in the wooden mortar to grind corn - up and down. Without shoes she tries to claw her feet on the sandy Laternit ground, lifts the child's body of off the road, against the mortar and to Africa. Her voice is always stronger under the vocals sounded only wounded and tearful, but now bursting with energy, filled with life, assiduously - God knows where." - Mario Gerth

Mario Gerth is an incredible German photographer who has travelled to more than 65 countries across 5 continents in pursuit of his passion. He has witnessed civil war, poverty, dictatorship and violence but more often he has been guest in a world that is characterized by natural beauty. His images pay homage to Africa and the African people and depict a world were dignity and elegance is etched on the faces of the people, where pride shines out in the eyes from the young child to the old man.
