Omo River

ETHIOPIA'S OMO RIVER VALLEY & KENYA'S LAKE TURKANA

In August 2014 I had the opportunity to travel with Jane Baldwin to Ethiopia's Omo River Valley and Kenya's Lake Turkana to work as Jane's assistant.  My role was to assist and support Jane with her ten year photographic, film and multi-sensory project Kara Women Speak.  This gave me the opportunity to travel by boat to visit the indigenous communities that live along the Omo River and depend on the Omo River and Lake Turkana watershed.  

The images presented here are photographs I took working as Jane's assistant. They provide a view into the lives of the extraordinary people who live on the Omo River.
