De Saga van de "Wildeman"
This thesis researches the representation of the Maasai in Tanzania and Kenya and the Kazakh in Mongolia on photographs from various discourses. It will focus on an artistic discourse, a touristic discourse and an anthropological discourse, and will research the representation of the people in them through various aspects such as clothing and attire, surroundings, the position of the body, and overall composition and visual elements. By researching the representation of indigenous peoples in these discourses, this thesis answers the following research question: In what ways do the artistic, touristic and anthropological discourses on the Maasai from Africa and the Kazakh from Asia differ from or resemble each other as far as photographs are concerned?
