The Art of Disappearing tries to bring awareness of the languid evanescence of the Arbore tribe in Ethiopia where their last 2,300 members are currently living. The modernization of the roads and the easier access of visitors is changing their way of life. The series presented is a small part of a larger on-going work where the artist tries to reveal to the viewer the underlying threat that the Arbores are facing while they are adapting to this new situation. The text on the images is there to portray the conflicting points of view of the visitors and the locals.

Harry Fisch has been a photographer for more years than he cares to remember. He has photographically documented more than 40 countries through which he has traveled.
