Esam Hassanyeh, Hamer Tribe, Lower Omo Valley, Ethiopia
Arille Koya, Lower Omo Valley, Ethiopia.
Arille has just climbed an acacia tree to cut branches to feed the goats. The rains have failed so far and food on the ground is scarce. The branches are full of small razor sharp thorns.
Like many daily tasks, this is woman's work in Hamer culture.
