A family of elephants walks along the plains. (Maasai Mara, Kenya)
Africa is always inspiring…great photos
WOW. we should be very thankful for all or little we have. amazing photos.
good stuff, Fat. Thanks for sharing.
Great work, powerful
Probably the best set of pictures I’ve seen all year. So much misery, yet so much beauty the duality makes for amazing stuff.
no bmx in this, though probably still one of the best things i have seen on defgrip and even the internet for a long time
Man, this story is epic and very inspiring, really
really powerful and moving. thank you…
im happy to have descriptions along with the images…thank you for passing along the stories.
how did it feel to be a ‘foreigner’, only peering in on a completely different world?
Awesome photos, great to see BMXer’s care about these sorts of things rather than being consumed by Dew Tour…finding a cheetah in the Mara is easy though!!!
Do you know the names of those Maasai? I think I can spot a Loli and Daniel but I’m not certain!
Thanks so much for all the positive feedback on this post. It means a lot to me because it means so much to the African people. I feel really blessed that I am in a position where I am able to share these photos and stories with this community of BMX riders and artists. You’ll be able to see and learn more about my journey and the people I met by keeping up with my blog at http://www.fattonybmx.com/blog. I will also post different ways you can directly help orphans and refugees.

Thanks for sharing these Tony, what an amazing experience that must have been. Making a trip like this has long been on my list of things to do at some point in life. If you don’t mind, could you explain how you got this trip set up?
The resilience these children show even after living their entire life through circumstances that we undoubtedly will never be able to appreciate is truly inspiring, we all would be so lucky to learn from these people. Thank you Fat Tony and Defgrip for sharing.
Truly amazing…leaves me a bit speechless
Amaaaaaaaazing photos but an even more amazing experience I am certain. Thanks for sharing!
wooohoooooo! Nice photos!
An incredible journey, and a beautiful way to be a voice for the voiceless. Thanks for sharing the simultaneous deep suffering and piercing beauty that is East Africa. Thanks for using your time and talent for good.
I was in East Africa (Kenya, Tanzania) the last three weeks and got back home 2 days ago.
Amazing experience, especially the Maasai people and their customs. This gallery reflects a lot of what I saw and I am glad to have come across it.
Thank you FT!
