Romantic, classic, with an element of theatricality.

The boy in the picture is a Mursi. He was very shy when having his picture taken, but was delighted with the result afterwards. The image is a tribute to the beauty and grace of the people from the Omo Valley, at a time when tribal fashions are being lost to the forces of globalization.
