The guardian

Posted by
: Helen : (who is currently photographing in, Australia) on 7 September 2018 in People & Portrait and Portfolio.

This photo was taken along the side of the road in southern Ethiopia. I thank these people for their generosity of spirit in allowing me to take their photographs and to talk with them. There are few Mursi tribes now that are not exposed to external cultures and tourists.
The 'race to document' photography trend has posed significant problems for tribal elders. Despite this, some tribes are managing to integrate tourism into their daily lives in ways that benefit their villages rather than destroy their culture.

I will respond to your kind comments as soon as I can. Thanks for dropping by!

Fantastic image. The 'guardian' stands out against the background. Good detail on the gun. Well done, Helen.
