This is a series of portraits of Nyangatom women in their village. I try to show these people, in their daily surroundings.
The Nyangatom are Nilotic agro-pastoralists inhabiting the border of southwestern Ethiopia and southeastern South Sudan. Many Nyangatom are nomadic, residing in mobile livestock villages that may migrate several times a year. A substantial number of Nyangatom also reside in semi-permanent villages. The Nyangatom have intermittent conflict with many of their neighbors, especially the Turkana, Dassanetch, and Suri.

"I'm a passionated traveler. I try to catch what amazes me in photographs and writtings."
