People of the Omo Valley

RAPHO_Hans_SILVESTER~01-008We have posted about the people of the Omo valley before, but these images constantly surprise us with their beauty.  It’s incredible to see how out of only the things they find around them they are able to create such incredible pieces of wearable art.

“Body painting, as practiced here in East Africa, the cradle of humanity, seems to me to represent a way of life that dates from prehistory and once enabled humankind to overcome the hostility of nature. Art was then a means of survival.” Hans Silvester
