Esam Hassanyeh, Hamer Tribe, Lower Omo Valley, Ethiopia
Geoti is beautiful. She has a captivating stare. She would arrive every day at dawn with a glowing smile on her face and the energy of the rising sun. She climbed acacia trees and cut branches with her machete to feed the goats.
After watching her every morning, I had an urge to climb the tree with her and take her portrait.
I soon found out this is not easy with a camera and lighting gear. Whilst the final photograph is not technically great, the image to me captures everything about this incredible woman.
