About the artwork

In December 2019, after a long journey in East Africa, American photographer Rodney Bursiel ended his trip in the Omo Valley in Ethiopia. Listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, the Omo Valley is populated by semi-nomadic tribes, including the Hamar people. The photographer set out to meet them, on a constant search for beauty, immortalising their acute aesthetic flair.
