What do you put on when you go shopping? This tribeswoman decided to visit a supermarket in her traditional clothes, which means… topless!
She has visited a store in Opuwa, Namibia. She comes from the Himba tribe. She got her shopping list and money. And she paid absolutely no attention to people around her. Naturally, they were shocked to see a topless lady in the store.
So, they took photos to share them later on with their friends on social media. However, that did not daunt the girl and she just went on getting the groceries and putting them into her cart. These pictures were taken by young wildlife photographer Ms. Persson, who happened to visit the store at that time. Here is what she says:
“The lady took me completely by surprise, as I was just doing my grocery shopping at a local supermarket while filming a documentary about the Himba tribe. She did not notice me at first, but after a while, she realized what I was doing.
The Himba women always dress like that, no matter if they are at home in their village or visiting the big, modern cities. It's for their beauty and tradition. They don't just dress up for tourists as some other tribes do.”
And the tribeswoman carried her baby on the back. The child slept while she was shopping in the modern world entirely unaware of the sensation she has made. Our world is full of wonders, and the contrasts are striking!
