Omar recently visited Ethiopia and captured stunning portrais of the local women, and their impressive appearances. “Ethiopia is a majestical country. The landscape there is mind blowing and what is astonishing is the richness of culture,” he says. The variety of religions and tribes gave this country a unique identity which is extremely hard to find it elsewhere.

“This portrait series was taking during my last trip to Southern Ethiopia, specifically Omo Valley. These people are from 3 different tribes who have totally different culture. Each tribe has its own characteristics in terms of lifestyle, language, clothing, and rituals. What is unique about these tribes is the art of decoration they do. It reflects beauty and uniqueness of personality,” he said.
