    Gold in Fine Art/Portrait

"Mursi People" is a series of photos that were taken during my visit to Ethiopia and are part of the album "Ethiopian tribes expedition 2018" and "SECOND ETHIOPIAN TRIBES EXPEDITION" 2019,black and white. The African tribe of Mursi people is isolated in Omo valley - South Ethiopia near the border with Sudan. They are one of the most fascinating tribes in Africa with their lives being a combination of brutal reality and amazing beauty. What was really appealing to me, as a photographer, was to capture and recreate the perplexing nature of their culture and way of life.
