A group portrait of three ash-covered Nuer boys standing in a homestead, with some cattle and a hut visible behind them. Young children and their mothers were often the last to leave the villages in the dry season, joining the youths at cattle camps near rivers or other permanent water sites at the height of the drought. Boys helped around the home by gathering cow dung fuel and milking.
