Two global peace nomads, Fatima Jibrell, a Somali environmentalist and peace activist, and James Lindsay, a retired Australian diplomat, wandered all over the geographic Horn of Africa promoting solar stoves. Fatima and James visited places where no one had ever been with a camera. The title of their book of photographs is "Peace and Milk (Nabad iyo Caano in Somali), Scenes from Northern Somalia". The title comes from the traditional Somali response to the greeting: "Ma nabad baa? " (Is there peace? ), which is "Nabad iyo caano" (Peace and milk). Peace and Milk reveals the beauty and variety of the Somali landscape, where a centuries-old pastoral way of life is under threat due to climate change, deforestation and the production of charcoal. Photographs of landscapes, people, camels, pastoral life, charcoal and solar alternatives tell a compelling visual story of a disappearing nomadic life style. Informative captions tell the stories behind the photographs and provide an insight into Somali life.
