The Masais are always photographed the same: jumping in nature while wearing traditional outfits and jewelry, almost like a group of animals. But more and more Masai start to live in towns and buy their first Nikes and put mobile phones in their stretched ears. Together with seven urban Masai Jan Hoek tried to find a new way to photograph the new Masai.
