Ethiopia – East/West & Omo, John Kenny

Ethiopia can justifiably claim to be one of the most diverse countries on earth, both in terms of its geography and its cultural anthropology. I have a profound love for this country: I probably know it better than any other in Africa.

During this project I travelled from the baking Afar lowlands in the far east of the country to the humid forests of the far west, where groups including the Nuer from neighbouring Sudan have settled. Part II of my Omo Valley project is also found here.

While most travelers go to places in Ethiopia by plane from Addis Ababa , the capital, we chose to do it all by car.
It felt like we were traveling through the whole African continent due to the diversity of the sites and people we experienced.
These photos reflect the timelessness of all these places. Time has stood still in most parts of the country.
Locations: Lalibela, The Danakil depression, Konso, the Omo Valley, Hawassa and Addis Ababa.

I was born in Paris but have lived most of my life in Los Angeles, CA.

Omo: Expressions of a People, Drew Doggett

 I am captivated by stories, driven by the chase for extraordinary beauty and passionate about capturing each moment with integrity and inspiration. Searching for rarely seen subjects, I’ve traveled to remote corners of the world to chronicle people and places that are truly remarkable. Depicted in their natural environments, they are indigenous cultures and communities through a modern lens; scaled and crafted for the most compelling visual impact.
Ethiopia’s sun-baked Omo Valley, an area recognized by scientists as the cradle of humankind, is home to a rich variety of semi-nomadic ethnic groups. Diverse in many respects but linked by their shared migration paths, these groups lead a way of life that is both colorful and austere. Herdsmen and their families keep cattle as they have for centuries, consuming just enough food to sustain themselves and sometimes enduring months of drought.
