Tribes of the Omo Valley

The Omo River in south west Ethiopia is home to eight different tribes whose population is about 200,000. It is a spectacularly beautiful area with diverse ecosystems including grasslands, volcanic outcrops, and one of the few remaining ‘pristine’ riverine forests in semi-arid Africa which supports a wide variety of wildlife. These tribes live in innate simplicity, and are still unaltered by the pressures of the modern world. 

The colourful jewellery, body decorations and traditional rituals of these tribes is one of the most extraordinary real-life shows of the world. Still, the conflict between modernity and ethnicity can be found here, where the lenses explore the rawness and simplicity of lives.
