This beautiful portraits of the members of a small tribe of Karo (Karo) in Ethiopia, which lives in the great East African Rift Valley.
Many tribes inhabiting the valley of the OMO river, and a large variety of fauna make this place one of the most unique on Earth.
Karo for ceremonies paint faces and bodies with chalk. It is also mixed with charcoal, yellow ochre and red iron ore, to get bright colors.
“I called for the tribe to capture the changes taking place in it after the government sponsorship of education, because of land disputes between officials, corporations, tribes, etc. I was allowed to stay in the village and I studied/researched them for about a week. Needless to say, it was one of the most memorable periods in my life. The Karo tribe in Ethiopia is different from other tribes, as they were able to turn to agriculture and the production of seafood for the production of food, to avoid starvation, and destroyed their cattle. But due to health problems some teenagers decide to leave the tribe. The invasion of the government and corporations can also potentially influence the duration of the existence of the tribe,” the photographer Vicente Pamparo.
