Ethiopia is a majestical country. The landscape there is mindblowing and what is astonishing is the richness of culture. The variety of religions and tribes gave this country a unique identity which is extremely hard to find it elsewhere.

This portrait series was taking during my last trip to Southern Ethiopia, specifically Omo Valley. These people are from 3 different tribes who have totally different culture. Each tribe has its own characteristics in terms of lifestyle, language, clothing, and rituals. What is unique about these tribes is the art of decoration they do. It reflects beauty and uniqueness of personality.

I was honored to visit them and to be their guest.

I like the decoration with the horns. Do they make the jewelery themselves?

This headdress and necklace is a visual representation of fruitfulness and abundance. I like it! I see she stretched her ear lobes as well.
