Hamar En Vogue II

    © All rights to these photos and descriptions are reserved and protected by international copyright laws. Any use of this work requires my prior written permission.

    Lalo, a young Hamar woman of marrying age, vogued this spontaneous pose at the weekly market in a small frontier town situated in the remote Southern Nations, Nationalities and Peoples Region of Ethiopia.

    Adorned with an elegant cowrie-shell collar, glass-beaded necklaces and small western-styled buttons as ear plugs for added adornment. The hair is twisted into short tight strands and rubbed in a mixture of fresh cow butterfat, ground red ochre and tree resin from southern Ethiopia’s lower Omo Basin.

    A graceful gait, an elegant long-limbed stance or this elegant pose under the photographer's gaze all exude poise and dignity even in the midst of the weekly market bustle.
