Chief Phikamalaza
We went to visit this Chief near Lundazi, Zambia, to get his support for a small project enabling girls and young women to learn a craft and give them a way of earning a livelihood.

I am very jealous of what you are doing there and must be quite rewarding.   I hope it continues for you well and I love the chief's name.  Really looks like Zambia too in the background.  Only thing for me is that I think he is too dark with the bright light behind and maybe somehow bring him out some more.  Chiefs certainly do not look like they used too!

I can probably shed some more light on the Chief! I don't do much post processing work while in Zambia because I am working on a laptop that is not calibrated (and because sometimes there are not enough hours in the day!) Yes, most Chiefs in Zambia now wear smart western clothes as a status symbol. I saw a picture in the newspaper last week of one wearing a very glittery gold suit with a stetson to match. He reminded me of Liberace.  I am off for a cold shower now after another long and hot day(about 40C).
