Happy Independence Day America! You can say what you want about the USA, but it’s always a good idea to focus on the positive. We have some legendary founding fathers, incredibly beautiful and inspiring natural parks, some of the greatest and most diverse cities ever, business innovation, music and entertainment, and undeniably generous citizens.

OH! We also have some beautiful colors.

There’s just something about red and blue, no?

Armstrong Kiprotich knows what I’m talking about. His gorgeous set of photographs, the “Head Wrap,” proves that red and blue are a match made in heaven.

Adding smoke, beautiful women, and unique fashion into the mix only brings these images to a whole new level of visual appeal. Based in Kenya, these series of photographs were inspired by the beautiful head wraps he admired at a client’s traditional wedding. In his blog, he talks more about his process, saying:

“Two years after Emmy Kosgei’s traditional wedding, I shot the first installment of the head wrap series with the ladies of Elani. This was in January 2015. I got the head wrap materials from a lady called Jackie Chirchir who also provided ornaments for the photo shoot, one of the ladies of ELani (Wambui) provided some of the head wrap materials too and I ended up buying a few more.”
