In the remote Turkana region of northern Kenya, young boys help their dads with taking care of and herding the family’s livestock. Most impressive were the little boys like this one who did men's jobs, confidently herding huge caravans of camels.

A public health physician in Singapore, my day job and photography keep me happy in equal measure.
