Photographer Captured The Beauty Of Tribal Women In Ethiopia
During his last trip to Ethiopia, photographer Omar Reda was taken aback by the richness of the country’s landscape and the cultural intricacies of the tribal people who inhabit the lands. His attention was stolen by the local women, and their impressive appearances.
“This portrait series was taking during my last trip to Southern Ethiopia, specifically Omo Valley,” Omar explained to Bored Panda. “These people are from 3 different tribes who have totally different culture. Each tribe has its own characteristics in terms of lifestyle, language, clothing, and rituals. What is unique about these tribes is the art of decoration they do. It reflects beauty and uniqueness of personality.”
Even in this globalized world, Ethiopia is still very much a diverse, multicultural place: “The variety of religions and tribes gave this country a unique identity which is extremely hard to find it elsewhere.”
