Guy Needham

Hamar Green

Turmi, Lower Valley of the Omo, Southern Ethiopia

In 2015-2016 Guy Needham spent time in Southern Ethiopia to take portraits that can be interpreted as cultural crossings. Written on the faces of those who posed is a mix of suspicion and acceptance, a personification of tourism versus exploitation. In this young man’s hand is a borkoto, the traditional seat of the Hamar.
