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

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

      This is a truly stunning photo, congratulations. If I may, I love the triangles created by the tree and the model's arm. The colours, the bokeh, the manner in which the eyes are looking at something off to the left. Truly wonderful.
