The woman of the Himba tribe always wear traditional garb, they don’t simply put it on for tourists.
The woman is from the Himba tribe in Opuwo, Namibia. While the Himba tribe leads a very traditional “off-the-grid” lifestyle, they are often using modern conveniences of nearby cities in their traditional garb.

“To me the thrill of taking pictures isn’t about the actual photography,” Bjorn Persson wrote on his website. “It’s about the preparations, the journeys, the long hours and all the sweat and tears that ultimately go into a great image.”

The woman’s young child dozed peacefully on her back as she browsed the aisles of the supermarket. These images were captured by Bjorn Persson, a Swedish wildlife photographer.

“She did not notice me at first, but after a while she realized what I was doing,” Persson told DailyMail.
Most of her traditional dress is made from goat, but people of the Himba tribe also apply mud to their skin and hair to protect them from the sun.
