Elegant Elder

The grace, beauty and elegance of an elderly Hamar woman on market day in the remote Southern Nations, Nationalities and People’s Region of southwestern Ethiopia. Adorned with seeded necklaces and cotter-pin earrings.


Returning the photographer's gaze - sometimes with a proud and knowing smile or an indignant look of resistance as the observer becomes the observed. The gaze is returned, the observer othered. Subject owns the gaze for a frozen moment.
