G. Pascal Zachary, the white guy standing between two Masai tribesmen, is a writer, journalist, and professor of practice at Arizona State University. Since 2000, he’s traveled 40 times to sub-Saharan Africa to document the region’s vibrant, rapidly changing society. In “Africa: Continent of Plenty,” Zachary writes about the sub-Sahara’s recent farming boom. Of the traditional Masai garb he’s donned in this photo, he says, “I’m a method journalist—I try to become part of the scene.”'
