The herder boys work astonishingly hard, for meager pay, in the toughest conditions imaginable. It is the only choice available to some, who usually have very little formal education and may enter into this employment from early childhood.
On November 20-16, Tom was able to return to shoot these portraits, and with some useful assistance from the team at Riders for Health, he arrived home with some very special new function. You can see his resulting series, The Herder Boys of Lesotho, in the White Space Gallery in London from 2-6 June until 1 July 2017. Discover more of his work at tomoldham.com.
