photoblog image Sword and fashion

Sword and fashion

The photo was captured in Abuja, the Nigerian capital. The man in the picture is from a nomadic tribe whose men are predominantly herdsmen who have their unique dress sense. A dress sense which is not an expression of their femine side neither is it a form of cross-dressing. This is an evidence of the rural-urban migration in Nigeria and his acceptance and expression of 'modernity' in his own understanding. Maslow's hierarchy of needs' second level explains  man's desire for personal safety which people choose to express in diverse ways. Some choose to be armed with a 999 police emergency phone number while the men from this tribe express in a literal manner. Talking about fashion in Abuja, this man's fashion statement is in a tiny minority.
