Trees, mountains and birds. Nature is wonderful, and that’s another reason I love to travel. To explore and see this beautiful world we live in. We need to look after it, it’s the only one we have. 💚🌍🌿💙
the Arbore we visited en route between Turmi and Jimka. they had one of the most beautiful villages we saw, with taller straw homes utilizing grasses from the nearby water. the women here wore beautiful necklaces that were unique to this tribe. #ethiopia#accessorize
village life on market day in jinka, a hammer tribe lady taking a break from the heat. #ethiopia#hammertribe
The first time we spent time with for three nights was the Suri. This is an aggressive group known for their Donga custom of stick fighting (sometimes to the death) to prove alpha male status. The women here don lip plates and the children eagerly cover themselves in clay and flowers to pose for photographs for money. This tribe lives in Omo National Park. #ethiopia#suritribe
the Karo are one of the more frequently visited of the tribes we’ve encountered due to their proximity to urban areas. this tribe wears many beads and have a unique way of styling the females hair with butter and red ochre so that it looks like small pebbles. this tribe lives in a fertile area right on the Omo River and primarily heards goats which we were able to witness at sunrise. this tribe fancies themselves the best dancers of the Omo. unfortunately we were not able to catch one of these ceremonies on the night we stayed. #ethiopia#pastoralliving
opportunities ahead to revisit last year’s passion project: travel portraiture. looking forward to big time adventures in december! #travelplans#portraitphotography
