Workday Nap
Photograph by Chris Johns

A baby sleeps while his parents make curios at the Kagga Kamma Private Game Reserve in South Africa. Invited by the reserve’s owners, landless Bushmen settled in a village near the resort. When tourists arrive, the Bushmen trade their Western clothes for skins and hurry to the visitor center, where they dance, answer questions, and sell crafts. Some reports have likened the operation to a human zoo. But for some Bushmen it is the best life they have found in a world that no longer allows them to pursue their ancient way of life.
