      • PORTRAITS FROM ETHIOPIA

        In March 2016 I embarked on a two-week road-trip with a Photographic Safari through the South of Ethiopia for cultural photography and visited several tribes in the Omo River Valley. Despite poverty, hardship, tribal clashes; the country and its people are beautiful and touched me deeply.

        Painted faces, beads, and decorated flower headpieces were what drew me to the Omo Valley. Mothers adorn their young ones in paint, beads and flowers; young and old go down to the river to wash and beautify themselves. A tribal tradition became a means of an income for the tribes in Ethiopia. Tribes that might one day become lost to the world.
