Daasanach Tribe, Omo Valley

The men are known for their unique and ornate hair buns. Each tribe of the Omo valley has a specific way of dressing and decorating themselves as a way to visually associate themselves with their unique customs and values. 
The Daasanach Tribe are a semi-nomadic tribe numbering approximately 50,000. THeir clans stretch across Sudan, Kenya and Southern Ethiopia.

It is a great honor to announce that my images of the Tribes from the Omo Valley will be presented as part of the slideshow night for the "No Strangers" Exhibit at the Annenberg Space for Photography.  The Annenberg Space for Photography is a cultural destination dedicated to exhibiting both digital and print photography in an intimate environment. 

Many of the photographers in the exhibit are those whom I greatly admire and have influenced my own photography. I have had the privilege to hear most them speak every Thursday over the past few months. To be apart of this show is personally one of my highest honors as a photographer.

Blair, Edward Burtynsky, David Hiser, Aaron Huey, Thomas Kelly, Mauricio Lima, William Fernando Martinez, James Stanfield, Brent Stirton, Amy Toensing, Jeroen Toirkens, A Yin and Gordon Wiltsie.

Tribes of the Omo

Taken on my last trip with my favorite tribe, the Kara. This is Mamo and Kale down by the Omo River on our last evening in the Omo Valley. On of the best parts of photography is viewing your images and reliving those special moments.

We are so blessed as photographers that we get to experience the world in such a unique way.

This weeks theme at #africantuesday     by +Morkel Erasmus and +Johan Swanepoel  is raging rivers. Although it looks calm these waters of the mighty Omo River,  are strong and moving at lightning speed just after the rainy season. There are areas that are roaring and people use to enjoy rafting down this river until the dams began to be built. One of the worlds largest is due to open in 2013 and will forever change this amazing valley and it's people. I have posted this image before but thought it appropriate for this theme and because it is one of the most beautiful places I have been throughout my travels on the AFrican continent.
