BENJAMIN EAGLE: ETHIOPIA PHOTOGRAPHY EXHIBITION

Ethiopia epitomizes many of the problems facing African nations in the new century. One of the world's poorest countries with serious healthcare issues, it is also home to a vast trove of mineral resources and boasts significant hydropower potential. As Ethiopia juggles the trade-off between development and the maintenance of traditional ways of life, the tribes of the Omo Valley are caught between two powerful forces. They, more than anyone, have a right to the fruits of the region's development. Yet, the spoils of development are likely to go elsewhere.


An enormously diverse area, the Omo Valley is home to dozens of profoundly different ethnicities, each with its own customs and habits. The ways of outsiders are as strange to these agricultural communities as their ways are to the outside world. This exhibition is a photographic journey into the heart of the Omo Valley and a personal discovery of the humanity that resonates within it. It is an attempt to give something back to a group of peoples that have proven that life, with its all contradictions, transcends culture, time and place.

Check out the exhibition which launches this week at Babble Jar and grab yourself some incredible prints.

All money raised goes towards Survival International and their important work.
