Nyabinghi Elders (from the vaults)



The Nyabinghi serve as wise elders to the Rastafarian community.

I photographed these men in Washington on assignment for the Washington City Paper.

True true true.

Beautiful photos. The elders pictured are Bongo Tawney, Ras Bigga and Bongo Shephan. Bongo Tawney and Ras Bigga are now ancestors and Bongo Shephan is still very active in the movement.
