I started working with Tariq Zaidi about two years ago, and one of the things that caught my attention was a statement on his website. “Tariq Zaidi (a self-taught photographer) has become one of those success stories one occasionally reads about.” This is true. I swear he has to be one of the hardest working photojournalists I know. One of my favorite images of his is of this Mundari man guarding his Ankole-Watusi cattle herd with a rifle in South Sudan. I equate the strength of this man with that of Tariq. Both strong and determined. His work continues to grow as he explores new ways to tell stories. You can see more of his work at http://www.tariqzaidi.com. Keep up the good work Tariq!
