Ethiopia - East/West & Omo

Portraits / January 2010

Ethiopia can justifiably claim to be one of the most diverse countries on earth, both in terms of its geography and its cultural anthropology. I have a profound love for this country: I probably know it better than any other in Africa.

During this project I travelled from the baking Afar lowlands in the far east of the country to the humid forests of the far west, where groups including the Nuer from neighbouring Sudan have settled. Part II of my Omo Valley project is also found here.
