Dula and Wale Bonko, Lower Omo Valley, Ethiopia.
About 11 days after this photograph was taken, we moved camp to another village about 30kms away.
As soon as we arrived and started to set up camp, Wale came over and said hello.
The next day, other Hamer men who were also from the previous village passed to great us.
The men were attending a bull jumping ceremony close to our camp and had walked 30 kms just for the occasion.
Hamer are incredibly fit and can walk many km's quickly in hot extreme weather conditions. Sometimes they will walk for days just carrying a rifle, a belt of bullets and a small wooden chair to sit on or rest their head when sleeping.
